As an agency of the Global Environment Facility, CI disburses funding for global conservation and sustainable development initiatives.


Much like Conservation International, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) believes that every person on Earth deserves a healthy environment and the fundamental benefits that nature provides. Since its inception in 1991, the GEF has improved the lives of billions of people while creating conditions for sustainable development. By investing in the planet, the GEF is investing in the human capital of this generation — and of generations to come.


Bringing together 183 countries in partnership with international institutions, civil society organizations and the private sector, the GEF is the largest public funder of projects to improve the global environment. The GEF channels funding through GEF agencies, which are responsible for assisting eligible governments and nonprofit organizations in the development, implementation and management of GEF projects.​
