Global Environment Facility

The Global Environment Facility forges international cooperation and finances actions to address six critical threats to the global environment: biodiversity loss, climate change, degradation of international waters, ozone depletion, land degradation, and persistent organic pollutants.

The Global Mercury Project is one of the UNDP-GEF projects in the international waters focal area
GEF projects to reverse the degradation of international waters are informed by—and help to realize the objectives of—a mosaic of regional and international water agreements. These projects enable countries to recognize and learn more about the water-related challenges they share, find ways to work together, and undertake important domestic changes needed to solve problems. The three categories of water projects are 1) water bodies; 2) integrated land and water projects; and 3) contaminants.
