BioGuinea Foundation | FBG
The BioGuinea Foundation was established in 2011 to provide funding to individuals, communities, and institutions which work to establish and maintain the balance between the natural environment and human needs in Guinea-Bissau. It is an independent non-governmental institution registered in the United Kingdom and headquartered in Bissau.
The Foundation's mission is to provide financial resources and mobilize partnerships to benefit Biodiversity Conservation, Sustainable Community Development and Environmental Education in Guinea-Bissau. The Foundation funding is generated by several mechanisms including endowment, sinking, revolving funds and innovative financial mechanisms like REDD+.
The creation and implementation of the Foundation is the work of several committed partners: The World Bank, the European Union, the Global Environment Facility/UNDP, the French Fund for the Global Environment (FFEM), the MAVA Foundation, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Government of Guinea-Bissau and others.
