Ramsar Small Grants Fund - Invest in Wetlands!

The Small Grants Fund (SGF) helps developing countries support the conservation and wise use of wetland resources, and the sustainable development of communities which depend on them and care for them.

Since 1990, the Fund has provided over eight million Swiss Francs to over 240 projects from 110 countries, for example helping countries to accede to the Convention and designate Ramsar Sites, funding the development of site management plans and national wetland inventories or policies, raising awareness of how to care for a wetland, and training wetland managers around the world.

Please have a look at our refreshed portfolio of projects and help us to conserve wetlands! The portfolio describes 20 very worthwhile projects from countries all over the world waiting to be funded.

If you are interested in funding one these, or should you need further information on any of them, do not hesitate to contact us at dufour@ramsar.org. We welcome both specific project donations and general contributions to the Fund.
