About this grant
The Japan Center for a Sustainable Environment and Society works to promote an environmentally sustainable and socially equitable society in Japan and throughout the world. Its international financial institutions and development finance reform program works to eliminate environmentally destructive projects and promote sustainable development in developing countries. For this project, the organization will encourage greater integration of environmental and social considerations into the policies and practices of Japan’s development finance institutions as well as convince the Japanese government to support reform of international financial institutions’ policies. To further the objectives of this project, the grantee will engage in policy dialogue with key decisionmakers, undertake policy research, coordinate and disseminate information, and strengthen cooperative ties with international, nongovernmental organizations and local groups.
