Summary

GEF SGP has supported activities in the oPt since 1996 through a regional cooperation between Egypt and the oPt, which falls under SGP Egypt’s programming umbrella. Significant financial and technical support has been provided by UNDP/PAPP, which has relied on SGP’s unique small grant mechanism as a means to accomplish environmental and sustainable development objectives. This publication highlights success stories and examples of good practices that demonstrate how GEF SGP has empowered community leaders, including women and other vulnerable groups, to find their own solutions to the environmental challenges they face. Through the support of GEF SGP, local communities serve as key actors in protecting and restoring the environment where they live while generating new sustainable economic opportunities.
