About this grant

BankTrack is a network of nongovernmental organizations seeking to reform the private financial sector and steer it toward social and environmental sustainability. It focuses its efforts on building the capacity of nongovernmental organizations to monitor and influence projects supported by private international banks. This renewal grant will provide general purpose support. Activities over the next two years will include monitoring international private bank lending policies; tracking implementation of Equator Principles and encouraging Equator banks to address issues not currently covered by the principles; and providing support to nongovernmental organizations focused on specific projects being funded by private international banks.
