The programme will focus on 10 countries – Bangladesh, Bolivia, Guatemala, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Morocco, Namibia, Niger, Samoa, Vietnam - under the Small Grants Programme, and is expected to support 80-200 small scale climate change adaptation projects in each country, focusing on community-based natural resource management over the 2008-2011 period.  Link | UNDP |
