Emerging from the Jamaica/Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP) the Jamaican SGP country programme has been selected to join the Operational Phase (OP6) Innovation Programme on Youth and Climate Change. This Innovation Programme in Youth and Climate Change aims to support innovative youth-led climate projects at the local and country levels that aim to provide young people an opportunity to implement “impactful and innovative local ideas, particularly related to green jobs”.
The Programme will engage youth to implement climate action through training, awareness and practical economic and livelihood projects. It is hoped that successful approaches will be elevated to national and global levels.
Applications should be submitted to the GEF SGP Secretariat by September 27 at 5:00 p.m.
