GEF-SGP: CSO Spotlight

June 24, 2021

In this first publication of CSO Spotlight, join us as we shine the spotlight on four of our Grantees who have been doing amazing work in Antigua & Barbuda: The Antigua & Barbuda Horticultural Society, Environmental Awareness Group (EAG), the Gilbert Agricultural and Rural Development Center (GARDC), and the West Indies Sail Heritage Foundation.

In addition to this, learn more about the services provided by one of the most essential but often overlooked marine ecosystems in this issue’s Feature on seagrass beds. We will also hear from Antigua & Barbuda’s first National Coordinator of the GEF Small Grants Programme, Ms. Ruth Spencer, who worked tirelessly with community groups, NGOs and other CSOs to ensure that they had a say in the development of our nation.

Meet the members of the National Steering Committee, the main decision making body of the Small Grants Programme at the country level; learn more about the funding opportunities available in the current operational phase (OP7); and finally join us in congratulating three stellar young women who have been showing leadership in the field of biodiversity conservation in Antigua & Barbuda.
