GEF-5 Replenishment Meetings
Donor nations fund the GEF and every four years, they commit money through a process called the "GEF Replenishment." At the November 2008 meeting, the Council requested the Trustee of the Global Environment Facility, in cooperation with the CEO and Chairperson of the Facility, to initiate discussions on the fifth replenishment of resources of the GEF Trust Fund (“GEF-5”).
Timing of the Replenishment
To ensure uninterrupted funding of GEF operations and activities (GEF-4 replenishment will fund activities until June 30, 2010), donors should strive to conclude negotiations for the GEF-5 replenishment in early CY 2010. The GEF-5 replenishment is expected to fund 4 years of GEF operations and activities, beginning July 1, 2010 and ending June 30, 2014 (FY11-FY14).
