About this grant

With this renewal grant, Both Ends Foundation will continue working to improve the environmental and social policies and practices of international financial institutions. Through this project, the grantee provides support to nongovernmental organization networks in Africa, Asia, and Central and Eastern Europe. Over the last grant period, it provided additional assistance to nongovernmental networks to engage in the World Bank Group safeguard review process and the Green Climate Fund. During the next grant period, the grantee will continue its leadership role in both coordinating Dutch and broader European civil society input into the World Bank safeguard policy review, and it will help to develop new nongovernmental organization networks to address impacts of Brazilian and Chinese development finance projects.
