This research paper studies influence of Country Ownership at multilateral level in Global Environment Facility. Through its policy reform on the resource allocation policy from 2002 to 2014, the study explores to what extent does Country Ownership influence this reforming through the negotiation by different actors. Based on secondary data, the research shows the existing institutional structure is the most critical variable to enhance Country Ownership for a better decision-making at the multilateral level. Moreover, the degree of transparency is an essential precondition to secure Country Ownership working.
