Side Events

Partners Side Events

From Sunday, June 24 to Tuesday, June 26, 2018, over 60 side events will take place when the Councils are not in session. The side events will offer an opportunity to learn about the key current issues in environment and development, networking, and collaboration.



GEF Side Events

Over the next four years, the GEF will  focus  its  operations  to help tackle  the  underlying  drivers  of  environmental  degradation  and catalyze  systems  change. 

To enable the GEF partnership to deliver on these strategic goals, the GEF has been modernizing its systems, updating its policies, streamlining approaches to monitor progress and measure impact, enhancing knowledge sharing and learning activities.

In a series of side events at the Sixth GEF Assembly, the Secretariat will present some of the GEF’s new features that will help deliver the GEF-7 programming strategy, enhance transparency and openness, and achieve greater results. The events will also help the audience understand how to successfully implement some of the new GEF-7 policies and methodologies.
