Official WHO Definition

Other Definitions

The convention, or treaty, are international environmental and related agreements that Governments have ratified to achieve goals related to sustainable development. The Convention on Biological Diversity(CBD) and the Framework Convention on Climate Change(FCCC) have both adopted the GEF as their financial mechanism, and provide guidelines on policy, strategy, program priorities, and eligibility. The GEF has a complementary relationship with the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, and is a principal funding source for international and regional oceans and freshwater protection agreements.
