Further comments on relative priority and on availability of resources

Belgium attaches great importance to the follow-up of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) as the interim financial mechanism of the Convention. As a GEF Council Member, Belgium pays special attention to the share of biodiversity projects in the overall GEF portfolio, to the timely approval of enabling activities, to the incorporation of COP guidelines into GEF policy and activities, and to the adequate reporting of GEF activities to the COP. In general, the resources for biodiversity through GEF have been adequate and growing. Within the negotiations for the 3rd replenishment of GEF, Belgium is defending a substantial increase of resources.
