About this grant

This general purpose grant provides support for the ongoing efforts of International Rivers to protect rivers, assist communities impacted by large dam projects, and encourage the development of alternative technologies for meeting community water and energy needs. The grantee plans to use this grant increase to provide seed funding to expand its Brazilian regional office, so it can work more effectively on Brazilian investments in hydroelectric dams across the Amazon region.
