About this grant

Les Amis de la Terre was founded in 1970 and has been actively engaged in encouraging the French government to support international financial institution reform since 1995. Over the last grant period, it was successful in getting changes at French private banks, particularly related to the development of climate policies. With this grant, it will continue to focus on strengthening environmental and social safeguard policies and ensuring that climate policies are in place at European financial institutions, the French export credit agency, French private banks, and the World Bank. This grant will also support organizational capacity building activities.
