About this grant

The Brazilian Network on Multilateral Financial Institutions, a project of the Institute for Socioeconomic Studies (INESC), is made up of more than 80 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working to increase citizen participation in decisionmaking on economic policy and projects financed by international financial institutions in Brazil. Multiyear funding will enable the network to strengthen outreach efforts in Brazil, Latin America and internationally; expand monitoring activities to include other financial institutions that operate in Brazil; build the capacity of member organizations; assist affected communities to more effectively participate in policy decisionmaking, monitor international financial institution-financed projects and improve their accountability; develop strategies to address the connections between international financial institutions and trade negotiations; and expand communications capacity.Recent activities included coordinating the Second Latin America Civil Society Strategy Meeting; participating in meetings and consultations with the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank; and expanding networking to link with Latin American and international NGOs working on international financial institution reform.
