Portfolio Solutions Exchange

IWC8 Logo



The IWC8 will feature a Portfolio Solutions Exchange event, where GEF IW projects have a plenary opportunity to promote their innovative solutions/approaches to scale up GEF IW investments from source to sea and beyond in the context of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The event will showcase five solutions that best demonstrate the greatest alignment with the IWC8 theme, and specifically, with one of the conference learning tracks: catalyzing transformation and scaling up investments; strengthening governance processes to sustain project interventions; and data to policy.

The conference plenary will vote on their favorite solution, done by simple ballot. A prize will be awarded to the project whose portfolio solution receives the most ballots.
