Partners and Links

The World Bank coordinates its GEF co-financed project activities with those of the other GEF Implementing Agencies, Executing Agencies, as well as with the GEF Secretariat, United Nations Conventions on global environmental issues, and other partners including bilateral development agencies, private sector entities, academic institutions, and nongovernmental organizations.

The World Bank continues to develop its information and knowledge resources on global environment issues including GEF focal area related themes, i.e., biodiversity, climate change, international waters, and ozone depletion. In particular, the World Bank site provides knowledge and information resources on:

  • Development Topics which provides a useful list of currently available related World Bank websites
  • Development Education Program that provides tools and resources to help teachers and students, principally at the secondary school level, study -- think critically about -- the often complex social, economic, and environmental issues of sustainable development affecting their countries, their regions, and the world
  • The Environment Learning Modules on "Access to Safe Water", and "CO2 Emissions per Capita"

In addition, many of the Bank's partners have developed useful websites that highlight the importance of the global environment. Links to these websites have been grouped according to GEF Focal Area. While these lists of internet resources are updated frequently, they are not intended to be comprehensive.

Finally, a number of ongoing GEF project's have created their own websites. Click on the appropriate link on the left navigation menu to visit these project websites.

If you would like to recommend additional sites that highlight the importance of global environmental issues to national development plans, please drop us a line at
