MDG-F Environment and Climate Change Programmes  

The Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Achievement Fund is an international cooperation mechanism that aims to accelerate progress on the MDGs worldwide. Established in December 2006 with a contribution of €528 million Euros ($US710M) from the Spanish Government to the United Nations system, the MDG-F supports national governments, local authorities and citizen organizations in their efforts to tackle poverty and inequality. MDG-F is implemented in seven thematic windows, where Window 1 is dealing with Environment and Climate Change.

FAO is involved in 16 national programmes under the Environment and Climate Change window. All of them started in 2008-2009, with duration of three years.
