policies, water, soil degradation, waste manageable energy, global environment management,
science and technology policies and participatory management.

entrusted with the management of this fund. An independent steering committee comprises of
eminent persons who approves or disapproves for financial support.
The fund has been established, recognising that there is a need to coordinate economic
development and environmental sustainability. NGOs play a major role in mobilising public
opinion and also act as intermediaries between the government and the community and in
demonstrating more sustainable development alternatives.
Project proposals must be prepared according to the application form. The proposal must
be typed in English and double spacing. Additional information should be typed as annexes.
The secretariat screens the proposals, suggests modifications and then the project is
appraised by an independent Steering committee.
