About this grant
Christian Aid, a relief and development agency based in the United Kingdom, has projects across the globe, including in Africa. Over the past eight years of Mott Foundation support, Christian Aid has established and supported a network of more than 50 local civil society partners that continue to influence the policies of the African Development Bank and other multilateral development banks toward better environmental, social and economic safeguard practices and community outcomes. Over the next two years, the grantee will strengthen civil society engagement with the African Development Bank and other multilateral development banks toward a more just approach to financing locally led decentralized sustainable renewable energy solutions in Africa. The grantee will work to reduce investments in fossil fuels while at the same time working to increase investments in renewable energy by the African Development Bank and other multilateral development banks.
