About this grant

Les Amis de la Terre has been actively engaged in encouraging the French government to support international financial institution reform since 1995. As a result of its work, the French government has a stronger stance on the World Bank’s climate and energy policies. As well, French private bank and insurance companies have developed sectoral lending policies related to energy. With this grant, Les Amis de la Terre will focus on World Bank and French private banks’ environmental and social safeguard policies, as well as shifting the lending of these institutions to more renewable and energy efficient projects. This grant will also support organizational capacity building projects.
