Global Environment Facility - Small Island Developing States and the GEF: Building Lasting Partnerships

You are here

Since the Global Environment Facility (GEF) was founded, the GEF has been a strong partner and supporter of sustainable development for the Small Island Developing States (SIDS). The GEF has supported the development of the green economy in the SIDS because nowhere is the inextricable connection between people’s wellbeing and prosperity and the environment more clear than on small islands. At the same time, SIDS are faced with fundamental challenges from climate change and unsustainable natural resource use that must be tackled immediately.
