The Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP) implemented by UNDP has supported the
Permanent Mooring Buoys Pilot Project and currently supports the Fixed Mooring Buoys and Community Based
Marine Environmental Monitoring Project deploying a total of 14 buoys around the island. The GEF-SGP has
also approved funding for MSDA/Reef Mauritius to carry out the Pilot Project for Marine Environmental

The GEF SGP was launched in Mauritius in 1995. It provides financial assistance up to US $ 50,000 and technical
assistance to NGOs and community-based organizations for activities in the areas of biodiversity conservation,
climate change mitigation, protection of international waters, prevention of land degradation, and elimination
of persistent organic pollutants. For more information visit the website on
