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. With prior Mott support, the grantee leveraged Mott funding to increase by three-fold the small grants provided to protect and support environmental defenders in South America. With renewed support, the grantee will provide continued implementation of the strategy to protect defenders in South America, with a focus in Brazil.
