Project flow chart
(1) To ensure the SAP is sustainable and can be
implemented by national governments - with or
without UN/GEF assistance (2) To involve
communities to the extent possible and ensure the
SAP process is supported by local people (3) To
lay the foundations for private sector
involvement to facilitate access to non
government capital and investment (4) To
deliver project outcomes on time and within
budget and to involve all stakeholders -
equitably and fair
Issue 1 - sustainability
Countries manage and drive the project, while
international experts provide initial
guidance, training only - national ownership
Transformation from the scientific to the
political process (TDA SAP) supported by
inter-governmental MOUs that involve foreign
affairs, line ministries, provincial governors -
political acceptance Regional networks are
developed and maintained by national
governments that pave the way towards national
acceptance and regional cooperation among
countries - regional political dialogue Use of
experts from the region ensures that expertise
and know how stay at home and do not leave
with the international experts at the end of
the GEF intervention - sustainable knowledge base

Issue 2 - communities
Millions of people in 5 countries - urban
nomadic communities OECD members, transition-
and centrally planned economies gt Regional
Small Grants Program augments the traditional
SGP, focusing on cross-border knowledge
exchange for villagers Green School
initiative bringing environmental awareness
to kindergarten and primary / secondary schools
Clean-up Day initiative to mobilize local
communities to clean up local waterways -
sponsored by private business Environment
Atlas, GIS, 10 websites in national languages and
English, for local government,
education sector, urban society
Issue 3 - green business
Private capital / entrepreneurship can complement
public funding but requires long-term policy
work to attract investment gt
Cooperation agreement with the Federation of
Korean Industries as a precursor to similar
industry involvement with other countries
MOU of Provincial Governors to cooperate in
biodiversity and international water
protection and green business promotion Green
investment or green business is defined broadly
as a private or public sector activity that has
environmental net benefits and that aims,
directly or indirectly, to protect the
environment, reduce environmental risks, or
minimise pollution and the unsustainable use of
resources. It is socially responsible and
involves those parts of society that are affected
by its impact. It employs best practice
environmental management principles in a dynamic
process that is subject to constant improvements.
