Since 1996 YBUL has been trusted to host the global funding facility called Global Environment Facility/Small Grants Program (GEF/SGP).

GEF/SGP Indonesia aims to support the achievement of goals set by Global Conventions to Sustainable Development, among others the Convention on Biodiversity and the Convention of Climate Change.

Grant support from GEF/SGP is targeted for NGO and Community Based Organization who have the initiatives to conserve the environment through developing sustainable livelihood opportunities of local communities.

Since 1993 to now, GEF/SGP has channeled funds to local initiatives, located throughout Indonesia. Besides providing grant funds, GEF/SGP also supports various programs such as public awareness, capacity building in various fields including strategy and capacity to manage community based businesses, policy analysis and dialogue, development of partnership and network, and monitoring and evaluation.
