Criteria for Eligibility of Grants and Sites
The guidelines and criteria for the ranking of grants and project sites are important tools for the SVGCF to use in its decision-making. The SVGCF will determine priority ecosystems, PAs, and sites to be supported. The SVGCF uses the following criteria to determine the eligibility of grants and sites.
Consider the ecological status of sites and weigh the benefits of protecting healthy ecosystems and/or enabling degraded ecosystems to recover.
Consider the importance of endangered and rare species to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’ national patrimony.
Consider critical threats and pressures facing the site and the need to take action immediately to prevent further ecosystem degradation and worsening site conditions.
Ecological connectivity Consider the role of the site within the larger ecosystem.
Consider the level of stakeholder interest and engagement, as well as resources available from community groups, NGOs, and other groups.
