UNOPS supports the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme that helps protect poor, remote villages from the serious effects of climate change and environmental degradation. In an effort to support community-led initiatives, UNOPS efficiently channels direct grants to help communities cope with climate change, conserve biodiversity, protect international waters, reduce the impact of persistent organic pollutants, prevent land degradation, and adopt sustainable forest management practices.\n\nThis collaborative programme with GEF Small Grants Programme and Mava aims to support actions that will further MAVA’s objectives in the Mediterranean and West Africa. The programme includes a combination of site-based projects and thematic national actions in five countries, as well as regional exchanges, government-CSO dialogues, and capacity building activities. The selected countries are Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia in the Mediterranean and Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau in West Africa.\n
