About this grant

The Environmental Defenders Collaborative, operated by the Global Greengrants Fund, is a 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. During the first grant period, an important convening of Supreme Court judges and civil society was founded on protecting environmental defenders in Brazil. This renewal will support the implementation of the four-pronged strategy to protect, prevent, reveal, and redress increasing violence in South America, with a focus in Brazil.
