Japan Fund for Global Environment

Environmental issues such as global climate change, desertification and deforestation of tropical forests, loss of biodiversity are posing challenges to modern society. Unsustainable consumption of natural resources in both developed and developing countries threaten not only the supply of resources themselves but also whole ecosystems. Likewise, the impact of these problems is not confined to the administrative boundaries or regions, and so cannot be solved without borderless cooperation. Therefore, international collaboration is important for the environmental conservation for the future.

The Japan Fund for Global Environment (JFGE), a division of the Environmental Restoration and Conservation Agency of Japan (ERCA) was established in 1993 by an initial endowment from the Japanese government together with contributions from the private sectors, including individuals and private corporations. The interest accrued from these fund management is then used to support for the activities of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and non-profit organizations (NPOs) aiming at environmental conservation.
