About this grant

International Finance and the Amazon Program, a project of Amazon Watch, monitors and works to influence extractive industry and infrastructure projects financed by international financial institutions and other public and private banks. This renewal grant will support the grantee to strengthen the capacity of constituencies in Brazil, Peru, and Ecuador, particularly local and indigenous organizations, to influence and hold accountable international financial decisionmakers for the environmental and social impacts of energy and infrastructure projects. Work will focus on the proposed Belo Monte hydroelectric dam, as well as energy investments in Peru and Ecuador.
