Financial Intermediary Funds (FIFs)

Global Biodiversity Framework Fund (GBFF)

The Global Biodiversity Framework Fund (GBFF) is dedicated to supporting investments in global biodiversity and helps in scaling up financing for implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (KMGBF). The Fund was ratified by 186 countries and launched at the Seventh GEF Assembly in Vancouver, Canada in August 2023. 

The GBFF aims to help countries achieve the Global Biodiversity Framework goals and targets with a strategic focus on strengthening national-level biodiversity management, planning, policy, governance, and finance approaches. Public, private, and philanthropic funding will be disbursed through the GBFF’s streamlined funding procedures. The Fund will provide enhanced support to Indigenous Peoples and local communities, Small Island Developing States, and Least Developed Countries, according to their own priorities. Fund Website »​
