Introduction

Since 2008, the ECF has extended its funding scope to minor works projects. As at March 2014, a total of 1,109 projects have been approved with a total grant of over $331 million. The minor works projects generally include greening, small-scale food waste composter, renewable energy items and energy saving item.

In order to enrich the education elements in new applications, ECF launches "Demonstration Projects" to replace the "Minor Works Projects", with a view to focus resources on projects with detailed education content and clear objectives.
Monitoring

Recipient organizations of minor works projects should include a monitoring period ranging from 6 months to 2 years upon the completion of installation to conduct performance assessment for the project. They should also make use of the facilities to organize related education activities so as to promote environmental education. Examples of educational activities include:

Talks and workshops
Plant care activities
Class learning
School open day and guided tour
Assessment

Elements of performance assessment include:

Growth condition of plants
Comparison of electricity bill before and after the installation
Estimation of payback period
Students’ participation in educational activities
