Cambridge Global Challenges

 

Canada, through the GEF, works with partners to tackle global environmental issues and to support sustainable development, including poverty reduction and gender equality. Collaboration and partnerships between governments, global institutions, non-governmental and local organizations, as well as the private sector are key to moving forward on climate action.  Canada is committed to these efforts to empower the most at-risk communities to better adapt and mitigate the harmful impacts of a changing climate.

The GEF is the single-largest source of funding and a catalyst for action on the environment. It funds programs that have brought sustainable land management, benefiting smallholder farmers; provided biodiversity protection and planning for productive terrains and water bodies; and have protected river and lake basins, groundwater basins and large marine ecosystems.

The GEF has also prioritized a stronger integration of gender equality and enhanced an engagement with the private sector to help ensure long-term project sustainability. This approach directly aligns with Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy, which emphasizes the importance of environmental and climate action to reduce extreme poverty, advance gender equality and empower women and girls.
