About this grant

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the way development finance institutions engage with affected communities and civil society organizations. It has also surpassed expectations in its severity and impact globally and presents challenges to development and climate finance to build back better. This grant increase will support the Center of International Environmental Law to work with the multilateral development banks to define the best standards for participation, expose and confront efforts to exploit the pandemic to avoid public scrutiny for controversial projects and lay the foundation for long-term transformation around development finance decision-making.
