|The GEF has approved a Project Preparation Grant (PPG) for Seychelles in order to produce a UNDP Project Document (PRODOC) and a GEF CEO Approval Request (both using the appropriate templates) for the above-mentioned project.
The project to be prepared is a Full-Size Project (FSP).
The approved Project Information Form (PIF) summarizes the project concept and was produced in close collaboration with key government officials, NGOs, donors and the private sector, under the guidance of UNDP-GEF.
The PIF was approved by the GEF CEO in December 2011 and it was included in the GEF Work Programme of February 2012.
The PIF received comments from the GEF Secretariat and from its Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP). These comments will help shape the design of the PRODOC and they will need to be addressed during project preparation through a formal response.
As per the GEF5 project cycle, once a PIF is approved, the GEF Agency, in this case UNDP, has up to 18 months for developing the project and presenting it for CEO Endorsement with the confirmation of co-financing. In this light, the Project Preparation Grant will be implemented over 10 months period. The Request for GEF CEO endorsement and the UNDP Project Document therefore will be finalized and cleared for submission to the GEF no later than Mid-March 2013 or it will risk forfeiture of its funding.
