Center of Excellence for Sustainable Development   
The U.S. Department of Energy provides a host of useful information to help one understand the concept of sustainable development. There are overview articles, slide shows, links to other sources of information, recommended books and videos, and educational materials and programs that can help communities in their sustainable development efforts.
Global Environment Facility (GEF)   
The Global Environment Facility (GEF) provides grants and funding to recipient countries for projects and programs that protect the global environment and promote sustainable economic growth. Funded projects fall into four focal areas: biodiversity, climate change, international waters, and ozone. Land degradation, as it relates to the four focal areas, is also eligible for funding. Both the Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Convention on Biological Diversity have designated the GEF as their funding mechanism on an interim basis. GEF projects and programs are managed through three implementing agencies: the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and the World Bank. The GEF Secretariat, which is functionally independent from the three implementing agencies, reports to and services the Council and Assembly of the GEF.
