Abstract: This case study discusses how a small grant to a young NGO in Madagascar to help create, strengthen and empower a local community structure for forest management, triggered a much larger project supported by UNDP-GEF and the Malagasy government. As a result, the formal process for the declaration of a 52,200 hectare protected area was started in 2005. Since 1994, IUCN NL has managed several small grants funds for NGOs in the South that are active in ecosystem and biodiversity management that at the same time benefits local communities
