The GEF Secretariat is pleased to launch the call for applications for representatives of civil society and indigenous peoples and local communities to join the virtual GEF Consultations with Civil Society on Friday December 4th from 7:00 to 10:30 a.m. EST (GMT-4), to discuss the Application of Traditional Knowledge by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities, Stewards of the Global Environment, a topic which was selected by Council members at its 57th meeting in December 2019.

This consultation is organized by the GEF Secretariat in collaboration with the Indigenous Peoples Advisory Group (IPAG), the GEF CSO Network and the GEF Small Grants Programme. The consultation aims at bringing the voices of indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLC) in a dialogue with civil society, GEF Council members, GEF Agencies, the GEF Secretariat and other stakeholders to discuss the value of traditional knowledge in supporting the conservation of biodiversity, mitigation and adaptation to climate change and combating other global and local threats, including responses to the COVID 19 pandemic.

The GEF Council recognized the importance of this issue and requested this consultation be undertaken to highlight practical examples from GEF, and other, experience in this area.
