NGO Support Program

Currently, many environmental conservation projects are undertaken by both Japanese and foreign non-governmental organizations, but they are facing not only the shortages in capital but also the lack of personnel with sufficient knowledge and skills to strategically drive the project. In order to tackle this issue, JFGE provides personnel training and useful information to environmental NGOs.

Please be aware these programs are available only for Japanese organizations.


Training is provided for NGO staff who desire to improve their knowledge and skill related to environmental conservation and for people who support environmental conservation projects sponsored by NGOs. In this way, the various needs for personnel development can be met.
