The funded pro-jects involved a combi-nation of the following components: capacity building; demonstration or piloting of community income generating activities to support environmental objectives; awareness raising and information dissemination. The projects’ beneficiaries are mainly the local communities, as well as the NGOs and CBOs in the implementation areas.
The GEF Small Grants Programme Operational Phase 6 Country Strategy Development The Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) provides nongovernmental and community-based organizations (NGOs/CBOs) in developing countries with grants to enable them to tackle global environmental challenges while ad-dressing local sustainable development needs. SGP is a GEF corporate programme, implemented by UNDP and executed by UNOPS. SGP Moldova started financing pro-jects in 2013. Since then, it has succeeded in funding and providing technical support for more than 11 grant projects. In its 6th Operational Phase (OP6) which will be under implementation from 2015 to 2018, SGP has the following objective: “to support the creation of global environmental benefits and safeguard the global environment through community and local solutions that complement and add value to national and global level action”. The key components or “strategic initiatives” which are multi-focal in character and that will guide SGP grant-making in OP6 are: Community landscape/seascape conservation; Climate smart innovative agro-ecology; Low carbon energy access cobenefits; Local to global chemical management coalitions; CSO-government policy and planning dialogue platforms; Promoting social inclusion; Global reach for citizen practice based knowledge programme. Countries will be able to prioritize and select from among these strategic initiatives based on national priorities and following country level multi-stakeholder consultations. In Moldova the Strategy will be developed by the Public Association “National Environmental Center” in partnership with Public Association “EcoContact”, in a tight co-operation with various relevant stakeholders at the national and local levels.
The Press Club "Climate Change – COP21 post approach"
The Paris Agreement – an insurance policy for everybody The climate change phenomenon is a daily issue, practically in all countries of the world. Republic of Moldova is not an exception. Ms. Dafina Gercheva, the UN Resident Coordinator / UNDP Resident Representative in Moldova, along with the members of ministerial delegations, led by Mr. Valeriu Munteanu, Minister of Environment talked about the global and national commitments following the adoption of the Paris Agreement on December 12, 2015, at a press club dedicated to climate change. The Press Club "Climate Change – COP21 post approach" was organized by the Association of Journalists for Environmental and Ecological Tourism from the Republic of Moldova (PA AJMTEM) in partnership with the Small Grants Program of the Global Environment Facility, UNDP Moldova and Ministry of Environment. The press club took place with the participation of Ms. Dafina Gercheva, UN Resident Coordinator / UNDP Resident Representative, Mr. Valeriu Munteanu, Minister of Environment, Ms. Inga Podoroghin, Head of Department for Policies Analysis, Monitoring and Evaluation, Ministry of Environment, Ms. Stela Drucioc, Carbon Finance Unit Administrator, Ministry of Environment; Mr. Vasile Scorpan; manager of Climate Change Office, Ministry of Environment. Ms. Dafina Gercheva, the UN Resident Coordinator / UNDP Resident Representative, noted “Climate change is different from other challenges. The damage is irreversible. Glaciers melt cannot be re-frozen, extinct species cannot be revived and neighbouring areas flooded cannot be reconstructed exactly as they were. Action on climate change is more urgent than anything else", thus mentioning that the Agreement represents a triumph of democracy, and compared it with an "insurance policy for the planet". The 2015 year proved to be an unprecedented opportunity for the world to change its way, by adopting an inclusive development path, sustainable and resilient. In line with the undertaken commitments, Mr. Valeriu Munteanu, Minister of Environment, mentioned that Moldova has two ways in reducing the pollution index. The first one – the unconditional reduction with planned policies, which consist in reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases by 64%-67% compared to year 1990; and the second one – the conditional reduction, which consists in reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases by 80%. In both cases, the country will need substantial financial support in the amount of 1.3 and 3.7 billion US dollars for the period 2016-2020, and 4-8.6 billion US dollars for the period 2020-2030.
COP21 COP stands for Conference of Parties, an annual meeting of all nations that make up the United Nations Framework on Climate Change - 195 nations in total. The purpose of the meetings is to continually assess the nations' progress in dealing with climate change and, every so often, negotiate agreements and set goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions that are the primary drivers of climate change.
The UN R esident Coordinator / UNDP Resident Representative in Moldova and the Minister of Environment at the Press Club “Climate Change—COP21 post approach”
The Paris Agreement – an insurance policy for everybody (continued) Even if the agreement is considered a historical one, Mr. Vasile Scorpan, the manager of Climate Change Office, explained that it does not provide for any sanctioning mechanisms if one of the signatory states is not fulfilling its obligations and has no incentives for the countries that are respecting the undertaken commitments. However, it is in the interest of every country to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases to save the planet. Although, Moldova does not have a high pollution index relative to the global situation, it is directly affected by climate change. Among the risks affecting the country, according to Mr. Vasile Scorpan, it is worth mentioning: lack of drinking water, drying indigenous tree species, extinction of fauna and flora species, desertification, decreased agricultural production and others.
UN Climate Change Conference
About 60% of greenhouse emissions are caused by thermal energy, electricity and transport, on the second place – the growing agriculture with 10-12%, the industry produces about 10% of emissions, and environmental waste 8-10%. A way of reducing these risks would be to increase the areas covered by forests, to diversify the energy sources. One of the biggest issues is the unauthorized waste. In Moldova, there are only two authorized landfills, from Balti city, and Tintareni village, Anenii-Noi district, which together are responsible for 8-10 % of greenhouse gases emissions. The Paris Agreement will be signed on April 22, 2016, on the Earth Day, in New York. The signing procedure will last until April 21, 2017, after which each state will have to ratify the agreement at the national level. The process will take place until 2020. The document is based on the provisions that will help to mitigate—reduce emissions, fast enough to reach the target temperature and create a global uptake stock for combating climate change; adapt the capacity of countries to deal with climate change to strengthen the recovery capacity as a result of climate change; to support – including financially.
EU-NGOs project in Modova Since 2014, SGP Moldova delivers the EU-funded project “Strengthening the environmental governance by building the capacity of Non-governmental organizations (EU-NGO Project)”. The project aims at promoting sustainable development and improving environ -mental management in the tar-get countries from EU Neighbourhood regions of the European Union, through more effective civil society participation in environ-mental governance. The specific objective of the project is to build the capacities of NGOs in selected countries to the East and to the South of the European Union to engage in environ-mental governance.
Opening of the Environmental NGOs Forum
Environmental NGOs Forum 2015 According to the organizers, the aim of the Forum is to strengthen the cooperation within the environmental NGO sector, which will ensure their active participation in the process of bringing environmental quality to European standards and rational use of natural resources through the maintenance of the Moldova's European integration vector. The Forum’s objectives are to exchange experience and establish partnerships, to determine the position of the environmental NGO sector in the field of European integration in the environmental sector, to create dialogue in applying the principles of participatory environmental assessment. Moreover, there were held several workshops where the participants presented successful projects implemented by NGOs present at the forum, identifying and putting forward solutions for the challenges faced by the environmental association in their activities, establishing a transparent dialogue with development partners, including the GEF Small Grants Programme.

trainings for environmental
In November and December 2015, the GEF SGP organized two training sessions on capacity building for environmental NGOs in Moldova. The sessions on the development of project proposals, were delivered by the GEF Small Grants Programme and co-funded by EU-NGOs Project ”Strengthening Environmental Governance by Building the Capacity of non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)”, funded by the European Union, implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Over 50 representatives of environ-mental NGOs participating in these sessions were trained in Project Proposal Writing (November 24 to 25, 2015 and December 8 to 9, 2015), thus contributing to strengthening the NGOs capacities to develop ideas and translate them into projects, in the format requested by the donor to be eligible and to secure funding opportunities. The training offered also tips and tricks in communication with partners and potential donors. This part was very helpful for the participants. The trainer used exercises to discuss and brainstorm new ideas for GEF projects. An important instance was to help the participants to link the projects with local businesses and develop sustainable activity that would continue after the project ends. Participants reached the conclusion that in order to seriously address the problem of ineffective waste management system in the country, yet another awareness campaign would not achieve the goal against a lack of waste management infrastructure (storage and recycling, collecting facilities and transportation). Therefore the efforts need to be channelled towards engaging with local authorities in order to take real action in this regards. Trainees had to understand that public pressure generated by civic mobilization is crucial in order to make authorities take action. Equally, participants were encouraged to look into the opportunities of a possible coalition of NGOs active in protecting environment. Most participants were eager to learn how to develop a project that would be helpful for the nature and community, and to ensure its relevance in accordance with GEF’s requirements. Training has raised the interest of many NGOs in the GEF’s areas and motivated them to apply to the GEF Small Grants Programme. At the end of the sessions, each participant received a certificate of participation.
On November 18 to 19, and 26, 2015, a training session on Lobby and Advocacy was delivered for 34 civic activists from across the country striving to build capacity of NGOs active in the area of environment protection. The group analysed the little impact of national media campaigns (specifically use of billboards, TV advertisement, etc.) as these require too much money and by throwing a wide net it is easy to miss the target audience. During the training session, participants were introduced to the concept of Guerrilla Marketing and had a practical assignment to develop a Lobby&Advocacy set of actions to promote the necessary legal reform for a sustainable waste management reform in the country. Further participants learned about the concept of direct communication with citizens, based on the door to door mechanics, use questionnaires to identify local issues, engage with the community and find supporters and potential civic activists. Following a very enthusiastic reaction of participants with regard to the direct communication cycle, a field exercise has been conducted in Cricova town for 15 civic activists that participated in the main training session. Trainees learned in action how to talk to people, overcome fear and embarrassment, use the principles of message box to ensure the effort was effective.

Water Map in Moldova
â€œWater Map for the ATU Gagauziaâ€? - a result of collaboration between PA MEGA and PA INQUA-Moldova The access of the population to safe drinking water is one of the most compelling social and public health problems of the Republic of Moldova. The water used in the diet causes up to 20-25% of cases of acute diarrhea and viral Hepatitis A (HAV) and about 25 - 30% of somatic diseases. Research conducted by the Academy of Sciences, the National Centre for Preventive Medicine and the State University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Nicolae Testemitanu" demonstrates that in our country the groundwater is over-mineralized, has an increased hardness and is polluted by nitrates. The drinking water composition as well as each chemical in part have an impact on health. Water samples were taken from 60 wells of ATU Gagauzia and chemical tests have been carried out, as a result of which the concentration of nitrates, fluorine, fixed residue, sulphates, chloride, total hardness were established. The selected wells will be marked, throughout the route, with information about the quality of water in 4 languages. Map of these wells will be available in the eco- ethno centre, which will be located in Comrat and on the following websites: www.inqua-moldova.com and http://megageneration.com/.
