About this grant

Re:Common is an Italian organization formed in 2012 that grew out of a long-established, nongovernmental organization project addressing World Bank Group reform. The main goal of this project is to monitor the changes taking place in international development finance and ensure that this financing continues to support and promote sustainable development. Over the last grant period, the grantee helped to coordinate and lead European nongovernmental organization efforts to influence the World Bank Group’s environmental and social safeguard policies. This grant will support research and policy analysis, as well as public awareness and policy advocacy efforts to address new development finance institutions promoting large-scale infrastructure and energy projects.
