About this grant

Berne Declaration has been a respected voice in the international nongovernmental organization community and influential in international financial institution reform efforts since 1992. This project will allow the grantee to continue its work with partners in the United States, Europe, and developing countries on institutional reform at the World Bank, export credit agencies, and private sector banks; monitor environmentally and socially harmful projects funded by these institutions; and educate Swiss officials and the public about the need to ensure that international public and private investments support sustainable development.
