The Fifth GEF Assembly and Associated Meetings to be held in Cancun, Mexico, on May 25-30, 2014.

The Assembly is the only governing body of the GEF in which representatives of all 183 member countries meet every four years, and is responsible for reviewing and evaluating the GEF’s general policies, the operation of the GEF, and its membership.  The Assembly is also responsible for considering and approving proposed amendments to the GEF Instrument.  

There will be a Civil Society Forum on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 where we expect to gather a large number of civil society organizations (CSOs), GEF Agencies, Council Members, the private sector and other stakeholders to discuss issues of special interest to civil society in the context of the global environment and the future of the GEF.  This event will be an opportunity to showcase the work of CSOs to safeguard the global environment including actions by community-based organizations and indigenous peoples; collaboration between CSOs and Governments; and innovative multi-stakeholder partnerships.  There will also be a range of other activities of interest to CSOs during the week including:  exhibitions, side events, site visits and round table meetings.   

We will be disseminating more detailed information on the GEF Assembly and the Civil Society Forum over the course of the coming months. Registration for the event will be opened soon.  Please distribute this notification amongst CSOs active in any of the focal areas of the GEF in your country and region.
