About this grant

The Center for International Environmental Law was founded to strengthen international environmental law, policy, and management. This grant will support new and continuing activities in the following three areas: promoting greater accountability and stronger environmental policies in international trade law and institutions; reducing the environmental and social impacts of the World Bank and other international financial institutions’ lending programs; and promoting greater accountability, disclosure, and sensitivity to environmental concerns by private international investors in developing countries. Under this grant renewal, project activities will include researching existing policies and developing policy reform proposals, sharing information and developing joint strategies with other nongovernmental organizations, conducting outreach to government officials and managers of international financial and trade institutions, and preparing and disseminating publications on key issues.
