Welcome to the GOS-UNDP-GEF Programme Coordination Unit (PCU), a dynamic local management system for the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) environmental programme in Seychelles.
The GOS-UNDP-GEF PCU was established in 2008. Our role is to ensure the effective coordination and implementation of UNDP-GEF environment and energy funded projects, which are executed by the Government of Seychelles through the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change.
We are currently managing a large portfolio of nine GEF projects, along with one Adaptation Fund project, responding to the new Sustainable Development Goals. The project portfolio includes environment, renewable energy and climate change adaptation projects. To date, the unit has implemented projects with grants received from the GEF of over $10 million with primary focus on the protection of Seychelles environment and unique biodiversity.
The GOS-UNDP-GEF PCU strives to optimize the use of GEF resources in supporting the achievement of environmental sustainability in Seychelles.
