We support developing countries’ work to address the world’s most pressing environmental issues. We organize our work around five focal areas – biodiversity loss, chemicals and waste, climate change, international waters, and land degradation – and take an integrated approach to support more sustainable food systems, forest management, and cities.

Stakeholder Engagement

How the GEF approaches projects is just as critical as the projects themselves. We are committed to cross-cutting solutions that result in stronger engagement with the private sector, indigenous peoples, and civil society, and an increased focus on gender equality.
