System of Transparent
Allocation of Resources - STAR
GEF Expanded Constituency Workshop
March 1 – 3, 2011
Kyiv, Ukraine
Introduction
• Issues from GEF4 to GEF5
• GEF Council requested reforms in resource
•
•
allocation framework (RAF)
Recipient countries requested new rules
GEF evaluation office provided useful comments
• This presentation demonstrates how the
GEF meets these new challenges
Outlines
• What is new from GEF-4 RAF to GEF-5 STAR
• Impacts of the new things
• Overall allocations of the GEF-5
• Future development of the STAR
What is new in the GEF-5 STAR?

Conclusions
The GEF used new methodology and updated indicators to meet
the challenges of donors and recipient countries
The new allocation system (STAR) is
1. more complete than the GEF-4 RAF
2. increasing the shares of allocation to the least developed
countries
3. providing wider and more even allocations
4. ensuring small countries to have enough funds to implement
at least one project in GEF-5 period
5. more transparent in resource allocations
Next steps
• Implement the STAR
• Develop new GBI for persistent organic
pollution and international waters
• Improve GBIBD, GBICC and GBILD
• Update and improve GPI and GDPI
