What is STAP?
In 1994, the GEF Instrument sets up STAP –
“UNEP shall establish, in consultation with UNDP and
the World Bank and on the basis of guidelines and
criteria established by the Council, the Scientific and
Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) as an advisory body
to the Facility. UNEP shall provide the STAP’s
Secretariat and shall operate as the liaison between
the Facility and the STAP.” (Instrument for the
Establishment of the Restructured Global Environment
Facility, 1994 and 2008)

Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel to the
Global Environment Facility
Project and program advice

Ensure the scientific and technical quality of GEF
projects and programmatic approaches

Responsible for targeted research (project reviews
and policy [ Principles for GEF financing of Targeted
Research, 1997])

Advise on cross-cutting thematic areas, such as
adaptation to climate change, sustainable forest
management, and chemicals management
Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel to the
Global Environment Facility
Strategic advice

“How to” develop/implement projects, or programs,
in a specific topic supported by the GEF strategies
(Example – “Payments for Environmental Services and the
Global Environment Facility”)

Develop methodologies for the GEF (Example –
“Manual for Calculating Greenhouse Gas Benefits for GEF
Transport Projects”)

Scan emerging global environmental issues
(Example – Enhancing resilience to reduce climate change
risks)

Collaborating with Conventions
Externally, STAP interacts in a complementary manner
with the scientific and technical bodies of:
–
the Convention on Biological Diversity,
–
the Framework Convention on Climate Change,
–
the Convention to Combat Desertification,
–
the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic
Pollutants, and
–
the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the
Ozone Layer

Questions



Who are the scientific regional centers, and
what are their expertise?
What are the countries’ needs for STAP
advice? (project, programmatic approaches,
and/or national portfolio formulation
exercises)
How can STAP communicate better its
advice to countries?
