On Wednesday, the Global Environment Facility Council heard reports from the heads of the multilateral environmental agreements that the GEF serves and adopted decisions on: initial guidelines for enabling activities and support for the International Legally Binding Instrument on the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Marine Biological Diversity of Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (“BBNJ Agreement”); streamlining the GEF project cycle; GEF-funded activity and engagement in fragility, conflict, and violence-affected states (FCS); and GEF policies and key social inclusion issues. The Council also decided on the dates for the 69th and 70th Council meetings, updated its rules of procedure, and received the report of the Chair of the GEF Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP).
