From Rio to Rio - A 20-Year Journey to Green the World's Economies
This book provides a succinct, readable, and engaging narrative and analysis of the 20 year history of GEF projects. While the Rio +20 conference provided the initial rationale for the book, it is intended to have lasting value for anyone interested in issues about the green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication.

Mercury and the GEF
The GEF has a long standing commitment to the elimination of global contaminants, including mercury, which dates back to 1995 when the GEF Council recognized the need for action on mercury. In recent years the GEF has taken a significant step towards addressing global mercury pollution.

The numbers tell a story: 21 years, $10.5 billion invested directly, $51 billion in cofinancing, and over 2,700 projects in more than 165 countries. Together, these numbers make us the world’s leading public financial fund investing in the joint management, care, and restoration of our planet.
