Partners: FAO, (lead), UNEP, World Bank, RFMOs, NGOs, Private Sector Program For Sustainable Management and Biodiversity Conservation in Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (ABNJ) GEF: $50,000,000 Total: $268,153,844 Multiple GEF Focal Areas: Biodiversity, International Waters Rights-based management and the ecosystem approach Reduction in illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, as well as bycatch. Reduction of impacts on biodiversity Introduce sustainable management practices for deep-sea fisheries Climate resilient management practices for vulnerable ecosystems Tuna and deep-sea fish migration patterns monitored
Marine and Coastal Protected Areas of Brazil GEF: $ $18,200,000 Total: $ 116,600,000 Partners: World Bank, National NGOs, National Ministries, Petrobras First marine national conservation initiative at this scale in the country High potential for implementation of sustainable Coastal Zone Management (CZM) and Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) Increase the area under protection to at least 5% of total Brazilian marine area Design and implement financing mechanisms to generate revenues for MCPA management, including climate change related mechanisms (Blue Carbon) and payment for environmental services (PES) Largest private sector co-financing (Petrobras) for a GEF marine biodiversity project
Standardized Methodologies for Carbon Accounting and Ecosystem Services Valuation of Blue Forests GEF: $ $ 4,500,000 Total: $ 23,090,000 Partners: UNEP, IUCN, WWF, CI, IOC/UNESCO, Academia, National Ministries Marine flora fixes carbon deep in ocean sediments, sequestering longer than terrestrial plants Develop methodologies for carbon accounting and ecosystem services valuation in economically significant coastal habitats including mangroves, sea grass beds, coral reefs, and salt marshes Goal is for ‘blue forests’ methodologies to be recognized and used by the international community and future GEF projects.
Arctic Agenda 2020 (Russia) GEF: $ 25,379,346 Total: $ 335,679,346 Partners: EBRD, UNDP, World Bank, National Ministries Multiple GEF Focal Areas: Biodiversity, Climate Change, International Waters Goal is to adopt and implement governance reforms for sustainable development of the Arctic in the Russian Federation Include indigenous and vulnerable communities Climate change mitigation actions, including: -Use of energy-efficiency technologies and reduction of black carbon; -Energy efficiency policy and regulatory acts
Sustainable Development of the Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) of East Asia GEF: $ 43,500,000 Total: $ 797,000,000 Partners: World Bank, National Ministries Multiple GEF Focal Areas: Biodiversity, International Waters Countries include China, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam Pollution reduction Sustainable development of large marine and coastal ecosystems Promote sustainable marine fisheries and ecosystem based management Replicate and scale up CZM activities including conserving coral reefs
Sustainable Fisheries Management in the Large Marine Ecosystems in Africa GEF: $27,000,000 Total: $160,000,000 Partners: World Bank, African Union, FAO, WWF Comoros, Mauritania, Mozambique, and Tanzania Assist development, adoption and implementation of governance reforms supporting environmentally, economically and socially sustainable marine fisheries in African LMEs. Transformative contribution to the region's ‘triple bottom line' of social, environmental and economic benefits Adaptation measures include: Prioritization of investments on adaptation to climate change for long-term conservation of the marine and coastal natural resource base; Improved institutional capacity for climate change issues, including monitoring and forecasting of climatic variability
