Item #d94jan112

Organizers of a December meeting of 70 countries in Cartagena, Columbia, expected this to be the last round of talks needed to reorganize the GEF, which is intended to finance activities in developing countries on climate change and other international agreements. However, a serious roadblock, with developed and developing countries at odds, emerged over the structure of the governing council. (See New Scientist, p. 7, Dec. 25; Global Environ. Change Rep., p. 3, Dec. 23; Intl. Environ. Rptr., pp. 923-924, Dec. 15). At a previous meeting in Paris, donor countries did agree on a target of $2 billion in new funds (ibid., pp. 840-841, Nov. 17).

A recent article in the U.N. publication Our Planet (Vol. 5, No. 5, pp. 4-7, 1993) examines the reorganization of the GEF in the light of its first three years.

Recent reports from the GEF are listed in this issue.
