Background

youth and persons with disabilities. SGP has supported over 25,000
community-based projects in over 125 countries aimed at biodiversity
conservation, climate change mitigation and adaptation, sustainable land
management, protection of international waters, and sound chemicals and
waste management. Over the years, SGP has developed extensive
