Independent mid-term review of the GEF Resource Allocation Framework (RAF)
Cartagena Protocol National Focal Points, Biosafety Clearing-House National Focal Points
As you may be aware, at its 32nd meeting in November 2007, the Council of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) requested the GEF Evaluation Office to undertake an independent mid-term review of the GEF Resource Allocation Framework (RAF). The findings of the Review will be presented to the GEF Council at its November 2008 meeting. I wish to invite you to actively participate in the survey and provide feedback on your experience with the RAF and your views on how it could be improved in order to enable the GEF to more effectively support the implementation of the Protocol. The deadline for completing and submitting the survey is Friday, 29 August 2008. In your response, please clearly indicate if you are a Cartagena Protocol focal point or a BCH focal point.
