Given recent developments relating to the COVID-19 outbreak, the GEF has decided to postpone this National Dialogue due to take place in Niamey March 16-17, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
National Dialogues provide a means for a broad range of stakeholders within a country (government ministries and agencies, non-governmental/civil society organizations, communities, academic and research institutions and the private sector, as well as partners and donors) to come together learn, discuss and agree, or take steps toward agreement, on environmental issues across the board. This includes information and validation of national objectives, policies, strategies and the means to achieve them; how to mainstream environment in national decision-making; national positions in Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) and coordination; incorporating the capital value of environment to national accounting and other issues of interest. GEF issues are normally a component of National Dialogues insofar as the GEF Partnership is one of the sources of financing and support available to the country.
