About this grant

The Sustainable Finance Center of the World Resources Institute provides research and data to nongovernmental organizations and key international financial institutions on the impacts of their investments and options to address these impacts. The overarching goal of the project is to improve the social and environmental performance of public international financial institutions by holding them accountable to their investors and to the communities in which they invest. This renewal grant will continue to focus on three areas — World Bank safeguard policy review; monitoring the Global Climate Fund; and the development of environmental and social standards for Brazilian and Chinese investments.
