Global Enviroment Facility
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.
GEF is an independent financial organization that provides grants to developing countries for projects that benefit the global environment and promote sustainable livelihoods in local communities.
GEF projects address six complex global environmental issues, such as: Biodiversity, Climate Change, International Waters, Land Degradation, The Ozone Layer and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs).
