About this grant

The Institute for Policy Studies works in collaboration with nongovernmental organizations, academics, and other stakeholders to promote financing for sustainable energy and to develop alternative proposals for the future of the global economy based on environmental sustainability, democracy, and economic fairness. This grant will support policy research on the linkages between financial sector reform and innovations in funding for addressing climate change. This grant will also support coordination with other organizations in the United States, Europe, and the developing world aimed at identifying policy alternatives and financing mechanisms that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote low-carbon, sustainable development.
