GEF-8 Programming Directions

The GEF-8 programming architecture builds on the successful approach in GEF-7 of investing in integrated programming and focal area actions to maximize the potential for more impactful outcomes to ultimately support Convention needs and expectations. In GEF-8, we intend to encourage countries to move more of their programming through ten (10) Integrated Programs that address the major environmental needs of the planet for which the GEF has a mandate. The IPs were identified through a consultative process involving experts from the GEF Partnership, who also reinforced their critical importance for transforming key economic systems. This will be complemented with more targeted GEF-8 investments along focal area-specific entry points to ensure that all Convention commitments are also addressed.
