The GEF develops its living resource Operational Programs(OP) based on ecosystems. This allows for the integration of scientific knowledge of species and genetic relationships with those of socio-political conditions and values; it permits the management of Biodiversity by taking into account the interrelationships among its components. The four Operational Programs(OP) for biodiversity are arid and semi-arid ecosystems, coastal marine and freshwater ecosystems (including wetlands), and forest and mountain ecosystems.
