At its 51st meeting in October 2016, the GEF Council requested the Trustee, in cooperation with the Secretariat, to initiate discussions on the seventh replenishment of resources of the GEF Trust Fund (GEF-7). The replenishment meetings provide an opportunity for contributing participants to review GEF performance and evaluate progress, assess future funding needs, and agree on a financing framework.

An important step in this process is the convening of Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) spanning the different proposed priority themes for the GEF. TAGs include external experts as well as representatives from GEF agencies, GEF’s Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP), conventions, and staff from the GEF Secretariat.
