South America

As large-scale infrastructure and energy projects continue to take shape in countries throughout South America, nongovernmental organizations in the region are working to ensure that those who invest in the projects adopt policies that strike a balance between economic growth, environmental preservation, and the well-being of local communities. Through our environmental grantmaking focused on transforming development finance, the Mott Foundation supports work aimed at addressing energy and infrastructure lending practices, as well as safeguard policies that protect local communities, indigenous peoples and natural resources.
