Mission/Mandate

The Global Environment Facility (GEF), established in 1991, helps developing countries fund projects and programs that protect the global environment. GEF grants support projects related to biodiversity, climate change, international waters, land degradation, the ozone layer, and persistent organic pollutants. The GEF is fundamentally a partnership for mainstreaming global environmental concerns into national sustainable development agendas. Its governance structure is centered around a Council composed of 32 representatives from member states who meet biannually to review GEF projects, future business plans, work programmes, and policies.

Implementing and Executing Agencies are responsible for project formulation, submission, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. Projects have to conform to the policies and decisions of the GEF Assembly and Council and are developed through consultation and dialogue with national governments and local stakeholders, the GEF Secretariat, and STAP. NGOs often play a key role in the project identification, formulation and implementation process.
