About this grant

The Environmental Defenders Fund operated by RSF Social Finance is a new program developed by funding institutions in 2017 to pool resources to support civil society and environmental and human rights advocates working at the community level. The goal is to implement a four-pronged strategy to protect, prevent, reveal, and redress increasing violence in the field. This grant would provide resources to enable the grantee to work with partners in South America, with a focus in Brazil.
