At its 53rd Session in November 2017, the GEF Council approved an updated GEF Policy on Stakeholder Engagement. As set out in paragraph 22 of the Policy, the Secretariat, in consultation with Agencies, civil society, and other relevant stakeholders, is working to develop Guidelines to Implement the Policy. Following consultations in late June at the GEF 6th Assembly, and an additional consultation period over the summer, the Secretariat has developed an updated draft of these Guidelines. They are here or above.
A sample Stakeholder Engagement Plan annexed to this draft is here or above.
The record of comments received to date and how these have been addressed is here or above.
The Secretariat is now inviting comments and inputs on this updated draft of the Guidelines. Please send these to Seo-Jeong Yoon at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 16, 2018.
