A number of guidance and reference materials developed specifically for the GEF National Dialogue Initiative are available on request, in some cases in multiple language versions.
The National Dialogue Initiative provides guidance materials on how to plan and organize an effective national GEF dialogue process. The programme makes available a number of presentations on GEF related policies and themes that may be accessed by countries who are interested to apply to host a GEF National Dialogue or who would like to use these materials for raising awareness more generally.
Countries are welcome to utilize these materials in organizing dialogues, workshops and seminars using other sources of financing (Government, bilateral, UN agency, NGO, etc.), in consultation with the GEF Implementing Agencies.
To view and download recent Dialogue agendas and reports, please see the 2007 and 2008 Dialogue pages.
