Central Asia and Switzerland Constituency Meeting

April 16, 2019 to April 18, 2019

The Constituency Meeting for Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan is scheduled to take place on April 16 to 18 2019 in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The Constituency Meetings provide an opportunity to share information, views and obtain feedback from members of the constituency on issues related to the Council’s agenda and beyond. The meeting also aims to review country and constituency coordination issues, to enhance communication and outreach efforts, to decide upon constituency governance issues, such as the order in which countries will assume Council Member and Alternate seats (rotation agreements) and discuss implementation of the GEF projects and share lessons learned.

We highly encourage participants attending the Constituency Meeting (or just interested in the GEF!) to take the free eCourse : Introduction to the GEF in advance of the event as it will benefit your participation!

This is available through the GEF Academy and provides an overview of the GEF.

By completing the course, you will gain knowledge of the GEF’s mission, history and institutional structure. You will understand the organizing principles and areas of work in the 7th GEF replenishment period (GEF-7). You will also learn about key cross cutting issues; the basics of GEF funding and its operational policies, as well as the results framework for GEF-7.​ 

The E-course has 5 topical sections, each with short quizzes on what you have learned, and requires approximately 90 minutes to complete in one sitting; but you can also take it at your own pace. You will receive a certificate upon completion.
