About this grant

The International Financial Flows and the Environment project of the World Resources Institute provides important research and data to non-governmental organizations and key public institutions on the flow of international-development dollars and public policy options. The overarching goal of the project is to shift patterns of development finance so that they support, rather than undermine, environmental sustainability. This grant increase will enable World Resources Institute to analyze the World Bank’s environmental and social safeguard policies and encourage a more thoughtful public dialogue on the importance of protecting ecosystems and ensuring sustainable development.
