About this grant
National development banks, such as those in Brazil and China, are increasingly dominating development finance in energy and infrastructure in South America. To carry forward lessons learned from work on international financial institutions and build capacity, deeper understanding of standards, as well as cooperation between civil society in South America and China, are important. This grant increase will support iBase to produce and disseminate two reports on Chinese and Brazilian development finance standards, as well as participate in convenings with global and Chinese civil society.
