Subject: Announcement to Civil Society- GEF Expanded Constituency Workshop for the Caribbean - July 2-3, 2013
Dear colleagues of civil society,
I am writing to inform you that we will be holding the GEF Expanded Constituency Workshop (ECW) for the Caribbean countries in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on July 2-3, 2013. This constituency comprises the following countries:
Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.
The GEF will finance the participation of 1 civil society member from each of those countries: Financial support includes accommodation, daily allowance and plane tickets.
The selection of civil society members will be conducted by the GEF Secretariat in accordance with the criteria in the attached document:
(See attached file: Criteria for selection of CSOs to ECWs.pdf)
This year’s ECWs have a renewed agenda, with hands-on practical exercises on national capacity development (NCSA), results-based management, monitoring and evaluation, and synergies in project design presented by Convention Secretariats (CBD, UNFCCC, UNCCD). The agenda will further focus on discussions regarding the GEF 2020 Strategy, the new GEF Fee Policy, the project Cycle harmonization process and provide important updates about the preparations for GEF-6 and the replenishment process.
Spanish / English simultaneous interpretation will be provided throughout the workshop.
Please apply to participate online at the following link:
Please note that the deadline for applications is Sunday, 2 June, 2013
If you have any questions or comments please write to me or Camila Perez Gabilondo, cperezgabilondo@...
Warm regards and we look forward to seeing you in Santo Domingo.
