The GEF CEO and Representatives of the 16 countries of West Africa and Chad, including twelve ministers met in Cotonou on February 18-19, 2010.
The objectives of the meeting were to take stock of the GEF 4 programs on Energy and Biodiversity they had endorsed two years earlier in Cotonou, discuss the implications for their countries of proposed reforms for GEF 5 and explore opportunities for potential GEF-5 Programs.
The Coral Triangle Initiative (CTI) is centered on high-level political commitments and proactive implementation by governments of the Coral Triangle area, and supported by multilateral and bilateral agencies, non-governmental organizations, and private sector partners (development partners). The six countries have chosen to address-in partnership- the management, conservation and adaptation to climate change of the tuna fisheries and coral ecosystems in that region.
The Pakistan GEF National Dialogue convened approximately 80 national GEF stakeholders for two days of intensive consultations and discussions about the country's GEF priorities and portfolio.
Participants represented the Federal and Provincial Governments, including the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture, representatives of GEF projects, various universities and research institutes, NGOs, the private sector, international organizations, as well as resource persons from the GEF Secretariat and Agencies.
