Project Description

The four main components of this project include:

The goal of this project is to support the programmes of non-government organizations (NGOs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) in their quest to help conserve the terrestrial and marine environments of St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG), and to promote sustainable livelihoods for its people. SusGren’s emphasis on civil society strengthening (capacity) reflects the GEF SGP Strategic Project concept objective which states to “make effective use of the built up capacity of local NGOs, CBOs and communities for replication of successful technologies and approaches.”
This project aims to strengthen NGOs and CBOs throughout SVG so they can play a better role in natural resource management. Programs under this objective will include some of the following: Institutional Self Assessment (ISA) for five (5) NGOs, five (5) Mini-projects for NGOs, the registration of five (5) new NGOs to prepare them for applying for the GEF SGP, and the development of five (5) GEF SGP by participating NGOs before the completion of the project, among other activities.
The other major component of the project includes the enhancement of Ashton Lagoon for the restoration of socio-economic and environmental benefits for Union Island and St. Vincent and the Grenadines (see Ashton Lagoon Restoration Project Page for more information). Activities will include the implementation of a monitoring framework for birds, fish, reefs, water quality and vegetation before, during, and after the restoration, as well as the installation of two bird and wildlife viewing towers in Ashton Lagoon.
