About this grant
The Center for International Environmental Law was founded in 1989 to strengthen international environmental law, policy, and management. It is one of the leading nongovernmental organizations active at the intersection of economic integration and the protection of environment and human health nationally, regionally, and internationally. This grant will support activities in the following areas: promote and seek stronger implementation of sound environmental and social policies and practices at international financial institutions and other financial entities; and help to use new climate initiatives undertaken by the international financial institutions to leverage changes in existing energy lending portfolios. For this grant, project activities will include researching existing policies and developing policy reform proposals, sharing information and developing joint strategies with other nongovernmental organizations, conducting outreach to government officials and managers of international financial institutions, and preparing and disseminating publications on key issues.
