About this grant

Forward Works is a Chinese nonprofit organization formed in 2011 to assist in the development of Chinese environmental nongovernmental organizations and enhance their capacity by providing training and strategic planning. Through this project, innovative initiatives will be developed to help foster civil society discussions in China to address its investments to developing countries, funded and guaranteed by Chinese national development banks, particularly related to energy and infrastructure projects. This project will also help to foster dialogue and collaboration among nongovernmental organizations in developing countries, especially with Brazil, India, and South Africa, on issues related to sustainable energy access for the poor.
