About this grant

The NGO Forum on ADB has advocated for sustainable development policies that are beneficial to local communities and the environment in the Asian region for two decades. It works to improve public participation, access to information, and good governance in the Asian Development Bank and the new Chinese development finance institutions. During the current grant period, the grantee is focusing its policy work on the review of the Asian Development Bank’s safeguard policy, as well as monitoring the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank’s project lending and discussions on their energy strategy and accountability mechanism. This grant increase will provide additional general purpose resources to ensure that this work will engage and be informed by a broad consultative process across Asia with the grantee’s 250 member organizations.
