    a| Annotation b| From 1991 until June 1999, the World Bank took on the implentation of 162 projects with grant funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). 44 of these are classified as forest projects. These projects represent a significant proportion of the Bank's forest sector portfolio and play an important role in the Bank's implementation of the 1991 Forest strategy. This GEF portfolio is one component of this review of the 1991 forest strategy and its implementation. The review is based on an examination of a number of reports and studies and on interviews with Bank project task managers and with GEF specialists in the NGO and donor communities. Country officials were also interviewed and the review draws on six case country studies. The report recommends that the Bank's partnership with the GEF for sustainable conservation of the world's forest biodiversity is expanded, with more strategically developed realistic goals and more innovative approaches. Impact needs to be expanded through increased policy and legislative reform, new forms of financing and engagement with the private sector, including the logging industry.The critical role of the NGOs in mobilising public support and developing innovative models should be supported through more appropriate funding mechanisms. The Bank's comparative advantage in analytical work and investment leverage should be captured through expanding the trend towards incorporating GEF projects in larger strategic programs to address the powerful threats and opportunities for biodiversity conservation emerging from other, linked sectors.
