About this grant

The International Financial Flows and the Environment project of the World Resources Institute provides important research and data to nongovernmental organizations and key public and private institutions on international financial flows and public policy options. This grant increase will allow the World Resources Institute to take advantage of a unique opportunity to develop innovative financing mechanisms to compensate countries that are willing to forego exploitation of oil and gas reserves in fragile and unique ecosystems. The increase will support research, publications, technical services, and travel costs associated with a workshop that will explore potential financing options.
