October 30 2003

Yemen has won the membership in the micro-grants program funded by Global Environment Facility (GEF) and implemented by United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Yemen.
This is considered one of the successful programs in the environment field.
Accepting Yemen within the countries that benefit from the micro-grants program has come after one year of continuation that is done competitively between the regional countries.
This step is also considered a success to support the activities of the environment private associations in Yemen to enhance their roles, besides being a step to benefit projects of the program.
Yemen is considered the fourth country selected on the regional level after Jordan, Egypt, and Tunisia, as there is annual competition to select a country that meets the program conditions.
