ECW Sierra Leone

May 10, 2016 to May 13, 2016

The 2016 GEF ECW for the Coastal West Africa Constituency will take place in Freetown, Sierra Leone from 10 to 13 May 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.
