About this grant

EURONATURA has taken the lead in assisting Spanish and Portuguese environment and development non-governmental organizations in their work on reform of each country’s export credit agencies. Since 2001, the work of Iberian organizations to address export credit agency reform has grown. The main goal of this project is to encourage the Portuguese and Spanish export credit agencies to require environmental impact assessments of all proposed projects; disclose relevant information; and adopt environmental and social criteria for their project financing. To achieve these goals, during the grant period, EURONATURA will undertake research on Iberian export credit agency investments; enhance knowledge and understanding of Iberian public investment in Latin America and Africa; and encourage Portuguese and Spanish government officials to promote reform of Iberian export credit agencies.
