Projects

The accreditation of WWF as a GEF Project Agency represents a huge opportunity to scale up WWF and country projects, programs, and relationships, to achieve transformational impacts in a new way. As a GEF agency, WWF’s goal is to help GEF member countries develop strategic solutions that address their complex environmental challenges.

The WWF GEF agency portfolio comprises transformational projects from around the globe. There are national and regional projects in Latin America and Asia, including two projects that are part of globally focused GEF programs. In Africa, ongoing discussions are being held regarding a number of potential projects. All WWF GEF projects reflect the WWF GEF strategy by being either a WWF response to demands from a national authority, or a strategic initiative developed jointly with the GEF Secretariat and other agencies.
