About this grant
Friends of the Earth International is a worldwide federation of 69 national environmental organizations, working collectively to address global environmental issues. This grant will provide continuing support for the grantee’s work on international financial institutions. The focus of its work is the creation of a fair and equitable mechanism to provide financing for developing countries to address climate change — both mitigating impacts that can be avoided and adapting to impacts that cannot be avoided. Through this grant, the grantee will ensure strong developing country coordination and participation by engaging the leaders of its member organizations in the development of policy change strategies; provide useful research and data; carry out training on climate finance issues; develop a targeted media program to complement international advocacy and research work; and provide support to its national groups through small grants.
