About this grant

PLATFORM has been active with the international network of nongovernmental organizations working to reform international financial institutions and private banks’ lending in the energy sector. Over the past grant period, the grantee assisted communities in Africa and Central Asia to address the impacts of energy projects in their countries, which led to changes in national policies on oil and gas contracts as well as greater transparency.

The grantee will also use this grant to explore fossil fuel investments of emerging economies, focusing on assisting organizations in Brazil and China to address their countries’ fossil fuel investment.
