In line with the continued health and safety measures being applied in most countries in response to COVID-19, the 59th Council meeting of the GEF and the 29th LDCF/SCCF Council meeting will be held virtually with a full agenda.

The Council, the GEF's main governing body, comprises 32 Members appointed by constituencies of GEF member countries (14 from developed countries, 16 from developing countries, and two from economies in transition). Council Members rotate every three years or until the constituency appoints a new Member. The Council, which meets twice annually, develops, adopts and evaluates the operational policies and programs for GEF-financed activities. It also reviews and approves the work program (projects submitted for approval), making decisions by consensus.
