The GEF provides financial resources for developing countries and countries with economies in transition to implement the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

The goal of the GEF-8 (2022-2026) biodiversity focal area strategy is globally significant biodiversity conserved, sustainably used, and restored.

To achieve this goal, GEF-8 investments will focus on three main objectives:

  1. Improve conservation, sustainable use, and restoration of natural ecosystems.
  2. Effectively implement the Cartagena and Nagoya protocols.
  3. Increase mobilization of domestic resources for biodiversity.

This publication provides details on these objectives, includes an overview of the 11 new integrated programs, and more.
