About this grant

After many years of working to ensure a robust and accountable environmental and social safeguard system for international financial institutions, many stakeholders now feel that new and different ways of improving these policies and accountability systems must be considered. Through this grant increase, the Program on International and Comparative Environmental Law at the American University’s Washington College of Law will continue its efforts to evaluate current sustainable finance standards, monitor the climate change-related policies of financial institutions, strengthen and use existing accountability systems to support affected communities in specific cases, and seek new approaches to increasing accountability of public and private financial institutions.
