The GEF SGP indigenous peoples’ fellowship initiative aims to strengthen the capacity of emerging indigenous peoples’ leaders by supporting their advocacy work on environmental and sustainable development issues. Four indigenous women from around the world were selected in late 2016 for the global component with a focus on biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation, while national fellows from seven different countries began their work in late 2018 to support SGP’s outreach efforts with indigenous communities and network building at the national level.
