About Us

The GEF is a partnership for international cooperation, bringing 183 countries, international institutions, civil society organizations, and the private sector together to address global environmental issues. Since 1991, the GEF has provided $18.1 billion in grants and leveraged $94.2 billion in cofinancing for 4,500 projects in more than 170 developing countries. For 27 years, developed and developing countries alike have provided these funds to support activities related to biodiversity, climate change, international waters, land degradation, and chemicals and waste in the context of development projects and programs.

WWF and the GEF have a rich history of partnership and mutual support. At the first United Nations Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, WWF was an active participant in the international negotiations to establish the GEF. We have since been a ceaseless supporter of its policies and operations, participating in the design or execution of more than 100 GEF programs and projects.
