Since rolling out its operations in Fiji in 2003, the UNDP GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP) has assisted more than 100 projects, with almost a total grant amount of US$5 million. Projects range from national level policy contributions, institutional strengthening and community-led initiatives on environment conservation, adaptation work, capacity development as well as livelihoods and resilience building efforts.
The UNDP GEF Small Grants Programme operates its strategic term under the guidance of the Global Environment Facility’s four-year cycle and therefore SGP embarks on its new four-year cycle for Operational Phase 7 in 2019.
Under the supervision of the National Coordinator or the Officer in Charge (OIC), the SGP Fiji intern is required to work with the SGP team in the effective implementation of the programme work plan with certain specific responsibilities. The SGP Fiji team includes the National Coordinator and Programme Associate and oversees the facilitation of at least 50 open projects and anticipates another 15-20 new projects by year end, 2021 through its grant management programme.
SGP Fiji office transitioned from its sub-regional portfolio in the past five years and therefore still needs work to fully sort and put in order some aspects of the transition.
While much of the work required of the intern is to provide support to the SGP staff, specific duties surrounding communications (social media updates) and monitoring of specific projects will be also prioritized for this placement.
The internship placement is for a duration of 6 months, with two main objectives;
