The Global Environment Facility (GEF) Council is the GEF’s main decision-making body. It meets twice a year to develop, adopt and evaluate the GEF’s operational policies and programmes. The Council approves new projects with global environmental benefits in the GEF’s focal areas (biodiversity, climate change, chemicals and waste, international waters, land degradation and sustainable forest management) and in its integrated approach programmes (IAPs) on sustainable cities, taking deforestation out of global commodity supply chains, and sustainability and resilience for food security in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Council also provides guidance to the GEF Secretariat and Agencies.

The 50th meeting of the GEF Council, which also marks the 25th Anniversary of the GEF, will convene in Washington, DC, US, from 7-9 June 2016. A consultation with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) will take place on 6 June 2016. The GEF Council will consider topics including the proposed Work Program. In addition, on 9 June 2016, the 20th meeting of the Least Developed Countries Fund and the Special Climate Change Fund (LDCF/SCCF) Council will convene.
