  • Producing USD$43.5 million in funding proposals, and securing USD$7.5 million in resources, together with partners.
  • Working together with CI and the U.S. NASA to initiate a four-country project on ecosystem accounting.
  • Organizing the first GDSA South-South exchange together with CI and IUCN
  • Hosting the inaugural Forum of Ministers meeting as well as a GDSA Focal Points meeting.
