The GEF provides financial resources for developing countries and countries with economies in transition to implement the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
The goal of the GEF-8 (2022-2026) biodiversity focal area strategy is globally significant biodiversity conserved, sustainably used, and restored.
To achieve this goal, GEF-8 investments will focus on three main objectives:
- Improve conservation, sustainable use, and restoration of natural ecosystems.
- Effectively implement the Cartagena and Nagoya protocols.
- Increase mobilization of domestic resources for biodiversity.
This publication provides details on these objectives, includes an overview of the 11 new integrated programs, and more.
