About this grant

The China-Latin America Sustainable Investment Initiative, a project of the Bank Information Center, works with partners in South America to monitor Chinese investment and strengthen voluntary Chinese guidelines for social and environmental standards, using best international practice. Over the previous project period, the grantee worked with Chinese partners to research and publish its third legal manual on Chinese social and environmental guidelines and trained partners in Latin America in its use. This renewal grant will support the grantee to update the manual and work on specific Chinese investments in energy and infrastructure in Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru.
