Biodiversity Focal Area GEF-6 Strategy Goal: To maintain globally significant biodiversity and the ecosystem goods and services that it provides to society. Objectives: To improve sustainability of protected area systems. To reduce threats to biodiversity. To sustainably use biodiversity. To mainstream conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity into production landscapes/seascapes and sectors.
International Waters Focal Area GEF-6 Strategy Goal: to promote collective management for transboundary water systems and foster policy, legal, and institutional reforms and investments towards sustainable use and maintenance of ecosystem services
Objective 1: To catalyze sustainable management of Transboundary Waters Objective 2: To balance competing water-uses in the management of transboundary surface and groundwater. Objective 3: To rebuild marine fisheries, restore and protect coastal habitats, and reduce pollution of coasts and LMEs 1.1: Foster cooperation for sustainable use of transboundary water systems and economic growth 1.2 Increase the Resilience and Flow of Ecosystems Services in the Context of Melting High Altitude Glaciers 2.1 Advance conjunctive management of surface and groundwater Systems 2.2 Increase Water/Food/Energy/ Ecosystems security and reduce conflict potential 3.1 Prevent the Loss and Degradation of Coastal Habitats 3.2 Reduce Ocean Hypoxia 3.3 Rebuild Global Fisheries International Waters: Objectives and Programs
Land Degradation Focal Area GEF-6 Strategy Goal: To arrest or reverse land degradation (desertification and deforestation)
Land Degradation Strategy: Objectives and Programs LD-1: Agriculture and Rangeland Systems Agro-ecological Intensification SLM for Climate-Smart Agriculture LD-2: Forest Landscapes Landscape Management and Restoration LD-3: Integrated Landscapes Scaling up SLM LD-4: Institutional and Policy Frameworks Mainstreaming SLM in Development
Sustainable Forest Management GEF-6 Strategy Goal: To achieve multiple environmental, social and economic benefits from improved management of all types of forests and trees outside of forests.
GEF-6 SFM Strategy: Objectives and Programs To maintain forest resources – Integrated land use planning – Identification and monitoring of HCVF – Identifying and monitoring forest loss To enhance forest management – Developing and implementing model projects for PES – Capacity development for SFM within local communities – Supporting sustainable finance mechanisms for SFM
GEF-6 SFM Strategy Objectives To restore forest ecosystems – Building of technical and institutional capacities to identify degraded forest landscapes and monitor forest restoration – Integrating plantation management in landscape restoration To increase regional and global cooperation – Private sector engagement – Global technologies for national progress
