Chapter Summary

Founded in 1991, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) is a global partnership among 178 countries, international institutions, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the private sector to address global environmental issues while supporting national sustainable development initiatives. The GEF governing bodies consist of the Assembly, Council, and the Secretariat, which is headed by a CEO. The organization relies on several implementing and executing agencies and includes a Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel, and NGO Focal Points. Most of GEF's funding comes from donor countries that pledge a certain contribution to the GEF's budget every four years. Innovative governance is perhaps the central notable characteristic of the Global Environment Facility, offering a set of features unique in the multilateral environmental and aid architectures.
