Known for its natural beauty and rich biodiversity, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is home to diverse marine, coastal and terrestrial ecosystems, including coral reefs, seagrass beds, mangroves, wetlands, rainforests and dry tropical forests. Despite their intrinsic and economic value Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’ ecosystems and protected area face significant ecological threats. To combat these, the SVGCF identifies and supports key management needs to protect and manage Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’ biodiversity and natural resources.
Up to 31 December 2022, the SVGCF has financed 11 projects in areas related to Beach and Coral Reef Restoration; farmland soil regeneration using Vetiver Systems Technology; Biodiversity conservation education; and assessment of marine and coastal environment following La Soufriere Volcanic Eruption. To date, the SVGCF has attracted funding from the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) which is a major donor and technical partner; and the Inter American Foundation.
