Q30: What is the JFGE?

A: The JFGE system provides comprehensive support through grants and other aid to projects by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) involved in global environmental conservation, both in Japan and overseas, through a fund created by pooling the strength of both the government and the public.

The main points of this system are as follows.

  1. The JFGE was placed within the Japan Environment Corporation, a government organization that performs various environmental conservation projects. The Law prescribes that the fund be established with governmental endowment and contributions from individuals and corporations. Thus, it is hoped that in addition to the capital from the government, private citizens and corporations make contributions (donations).
  2. The Japan Environment Corporation comprehensively promotes the following programs with the investment gains earned from JFGE.
    1. Support for non-governmental organizations (Grants Program)
      1. Environmental conservation activities in developing regions by Japanese NGOs
      2. Environmental conservation activities in developing regions by non-Japanese NGOs
      3. Environmental conservation activities in Japan by Japanese NGOs
    2. Provision of training and information necessary for NGOs to promote projects (NGO Support Program)
  3. For the JFGE programs to be implemented appropriately, the Management Council was created consisting of specialists from various fields. Furthermore, the public is notified about the management of the fund.
