GEF works with the focal areas of biodiversity, climate change and land degradation, as well as sustainable cities, which have to do with waste management and the creation of food systems.

Part of the Fund's objectives is to give a value in four to four year cycles to support developing countries in promoting their sustainable development.

To carry out these actions, technicians from the Ministry of the Environment have been meeting since Tuesday (Tuesday), with members of some SADC countries, in Luanda, to exchange ideas on the mechanisms of operation of the new financing cycle provided by GEF.

Speaking at the opening of the 2nd SADC Regional Workshop for the Global Environment Fund, representing Environment Minister Paula Francisco Coelho, GEF board member Júlio Inglês said the event aims to convey the political and operational focal points at SADC level.

Project coordinators and government institutions will also talk about the funding cycles of the environmental programs and projects that benefit from this fund in order to support governments in meeting the challenges of sustainable goals.

In 2018, Angola benefited from USD 10 million, having already identified the government's priority projects for eligible environmental issues and is awaiting their approval.
