About this grant

This grant will support the Instituto del Bien Común, a nonprofit, technical assistance organization, to develop and promote environmental and social standards for oil and gas and infrastructure investments in the Peruvian Amazon and to minimize the negative impacts of large-scale energy and infrastructure projects on the environment and local communities. The Instituto del Bien Común will provide local communities in the Andean Amazon with maps, policy analysis, and strategic advice on infrastructure and oil and gas investments so they can have a more informed voice in shaping these investments to be more sustainable.
