Global Environmental Benefits (GEBs)

The GEF’s mission is to deliver global environmental benefits, as they relate to international conventions and commitments. GEF projects must demonstrate that the project activities are delivering global environmental benefits. For example:

  • If the Focal Area is International Waters, potential Global Environmental Benefits may include preservation of freshwater resources in the Danube River Basin
  • If the Focal Area is Biodiversity, potential Global Environmental Benefits may include conservation of tigers, endangered flora, etc.
