About this grant

International financial institutions, and increasingly national development banks, play a key role in financing energy and infrastructure projects around the world, which have both social and environmental impacts. This general purpose grant increase to Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide will help support the 2014 annual meeting, which brings together scientific and environmental leaders to share experiences, discuss the state-of-the-art in legal and scientific standards worldwide, and collaborate on new strategies to address energy resource extraction and its finance. This increase will enable the grantee to co-host the annual meeting in Germany.
