About this grant
Les Amis de la Terre has been working to promote international financial institution reform since 1995. This grant will enable the organization to focus reform efforts on strengthening the environmental and social safeguard policies of European financial institutions, the French export credit agency (ECA), French private banks and the World Bank. In addition, Les Amis de la Terre will ensure that monitoring and compliance mechanisms are developed for these higher standards; support organizational capacity-building projects; and strengthen the international export credit reform network.Recent efforts have focused on reforming the French ECA and the World Bank; managing the International ECA Reform Network; producing a toolkit for the creation of new local groups in France; and conducting training sessions for volunteers in media relations.
