Who should apply?
All interested parties whose projects meet the GEF funding criteria can apply for GEF resources. Government organisations, private sector, community-based organizations and non-governmental organizations have the opportunity to apply for GEF resources.
Project proponents are advised to discuss their project concepts with the DBSA as a project agency which will act as a channel between the applicant, the DEA and the GEF for the project approval process. In assessing projects for GEF funding, the programming process of the DEA will be followed.
