ECW Kazakhstan

June 21, 2016 to June 24, 2016

The 2016 GEF ECW for the Eastern Europe Constituency took place in Astana, Kazakhstan from 21  to 24 June 2016.

The ECWs bring together GEF focal points, national focal points from the main international environmental conventions (biodiversity, desertification, climate change, and persistent organic pollutants), representatives from the civil society, GEF Agencies, and the GEF Secretariat. These workshops are an opportunity for participants to meet with their counterparts from other regional countries and other GEF partners, to discuss and review policies and procedures, and to share lessons and experiences from development and implementation of GEF projects and their integration within national policy frameworks.
