About this grant

Oil Change International is a research and policy reform organization working to encourage progress in the energy industry toward a sustainable energy future. The grantee’s international program focuses on reforming the energy-related lending of public multilateral financial institutions, export credit agencies, and key private financial institutions. Over the grant period, it will build upon its successes from the last grant period in shifting fossil fuel subsidies toward clean energy access for the poor. To accomplish this goal, the grantee will analyze and present research papers highlighting the scope, as well as the environmental and social implications, of current global fossil fuel subsidies and organize a global nongovernmental organization coalition to build awareness among emerging market countries’ decisionmakers.
