About this grant

The BRICS Policy Center is a think tank dedicated to studying the structural shift occurring in international development finance as Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa emerge as prominent global actors. Administered by the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, the BRICS Policy Center has established a research program to cultivate international expertise and dialogue on social and environmental safeguards for development finance, with emphasis on the role of new development finance institutions. With this grant increase, the safeguards specialists team will grow to two experts.
