The Fourth Assembly of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) was held from 24 - 28 May, 2010 at the Convention Center of the Conrad Resort & Casino - Punta del Este, Uruguay.

The Assembly, held once every four years, is a strategic opportunity for GEF stakeholders to meet, take stock, and collectively strengthen strategies and actions for protecting the global environment and achieving sustainable development.

The Assembly combined plenary meetings and high-level panels, exhibits, side events and GEF project site visits.

Prominent environmentalists, parliamentarians, business leaders, scientists, and civil society organizations (CSO’s) and community leaders discussed global environmental challenges within the context of sustainable development and other international development goals.

The Government of Uruguay was honored to host the Fourth GEF Assembly, which was held for the first time in Latin America.
