GEF Innovations in Blended Finance: A Summary

Transforming the world's energy systems, cities, and land-use systems to become low-carbon and resilient will require a large-scale change in global finance flows. The magnitude of financing is in the order of trillions of dollars per year, of which a large amount comes from the private sector. It is therefore critical that scarce public resources are deployed in a way that catalyzes the required redirection of finance. Blended finance aims to achieve exactly that, and therefore has attracted significant interest in recent years.

Behind the Numbers 2015: A Closer Look at GEF Achievements

Our numbers tell a story about the depth and breadth of the GEF’s activities: In its 24-year history, the GEF has invested $14.5 billion directly, and leveraged $75.4 billion in additional resources, for 3,946 projects in 167 countries. Rooted in our role as a financial mechanism for the Rio Conventions and other multilateral agreements, the GEF is uniquely placed to help buttress the health of the global commons—the planet’s finite environmental resources, from land and forests to oceans and the atmosphere—which are essential for a thriving world.

GEF Integrated Approach Pilot: Fostering Sustainability and Resilience for Food Security in Sub-Saharan Africa

The challenge of food security in Africa will intensify in the coming decades. Demand for food will increase sharply in Africa as the African population is set to double by 2050, and as the population in parallel become more affluent. At the same time, with a chronic food deficit, one-quarter of its population undernourished, the lowest crop yields in the world and poor soil quality, Africa’s starting point in terms of food security is challenging. Climate change will further exacerbate the risks facing agriculture in Africa, which is dominated by small farms with few assets and limited capacities to adapt.
