Global Environment Facility
Why It Matters
The GEF exerts significant influence for positive change by investing in new ideas, bringing together influential partners and taking solutions to scale across the globe. As a GEF partner agency, WWF can leverage this influence—in conjunction with our own global network of expertise and partnerships—to protect some of the most vulnerable species, places and communities on Earth.
WWF’s work is a natural fit with the GEF’s mission. As a leading international conservation organization, we have significant expertise in financing action for environmental management. We also have a long history of active field presence around the world, including a longstanding presence in developing nations.
Our strong, active relationships with national and local governments, combined with our deep roots in the civil society of the places we work, give WWF the knowledge necessary to tailor projects to countries’ specific needs. And because we have collaborated with GEF agencies for many years, we are familiar with GEF processes and objectives.
