Small Grants Programme (SGP) in the past 25 years has gained considerable experiences of protecting ocean and coastal environment while enhancing livelihoods and empower local communities. There is a need to advance the experiences and lessons learnt to further promote a balanced approach to economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable ocean and coastal management.
The SGP Blue Economy Innovation Program seeks to protect the ocean and coastal environment through the enhancement of the efficiency and sustainability of community-based blue economy. It is premised on the fact that enhanced resource use efficiency will create more livelihoods opportunities while reducing human induced pressure on ocean and coastal ecosystems.
The goal of the program is to identify, test and scale up innovative community-based projects that boost local livelihoods through better and sustainable use of ocean and coastal resources through active social inclusion, particularly women and girls, youth, indigenous peoples, and persons with disabilities.
