Mexico faces unprecedented challenges and opportunities in improving civic engagement in natural resources management. Fondo de Acción Solidaria (FASOL) partners with grassroots organizations to improve environmental governance. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen democratic governance in Mexico. FASOL’s activities make more resources available to communities seeking to address their own development needs.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to encourage innovative and entrepreneurial thinking to unlock private, public and local resources for grassroots development.
