Global Environment Facility

Global Environment Facility

El Fondo para el Medio Ambiente Mundial (en inglés Global Environment Facility, GEF) es una asociación global integrada por 178 países, instituciones internacionales, organizaciones no gubernamentales y el sector privado; tiene el cometido de encarar temáticas medioambientales a escala planetaria y apoyar iniciativas de desarrollo sostenible a nivel local. Proporciona fondos para proyectos relacionados con seis áreas principales: biodiversidad, cambio climático, aguas internacionales, degradación de tierras, capa de ozono, agentes contaminantes orgánicos persistentes.[1]

El GEF constituye el mecanismo financiero para una serie de convenciones y acuerdos ambientales multilaterales. Por consiguiente, el GEF asiste a países para que puedan cumplir con sus obligaciones según las convenciones internacionales que hayan firmado o ratificado.
