About this grant

China has become a new leader in the world of international development finance to poor developing countries in Africa, other parts of Asia, and Latin America. To monitor and engage the Chinese government on its international development finance, it is important to develop the capacity of Chinese nongovernmental organizations to address these issues. The Chinese environmental organization, Green Watershed, is leading an effort to monitor new Chinese rules requiring environmental and social protections for its lending to developing countries — known as green credit policies. This grant will support the development and expansion of the grantee’s work on Chinese green credit policies and enhance its staff capacity to monitor this finance.
