The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)
UNOPS Small Grants Cluster provides full-cycle grant management and programme support services, supporting sustainable livelihoods around the world.
UNOPS global reach and wide network of partners ensures that our small grants services are efficient and have a significant impact on communities in need, focusing particularly on environment, national capacity, indigenous peoples, human rights and women’s empowerment initiatives.
As part of this, 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.
