Under the seventh GEF replenishment, GEF-7, Impact Programs (IPs) on Food Systems, Land Use and Restoration (FOLUR); Sustainable Forest Management (SFM); and Sustainable Cities are being developed to address the drivers of environmental degradation, and to support transformational change in these key systems.

The Impact Program directly engages 27 countries that were selected on the basis of their strong alignment with the program vision and their high potential to generate global environmental benefits through investments in promoting transformational change. The countries are: Brazil, China, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Guinea, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria, Madagascar, Malaysia, Nicaragua, Peru, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Liberia, Burundi, Ghana, Guatemala, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Tanzania, Thailand, and Uganda. The Impact Program will benefit participating countries by helping them reconcile competing social, economic, and environmental objectives of land management, and move away from unsustainable sectoral approaches.
