Providing financial resources to nascent and remote grassroots organizations through national socio-environmental funds has been challenging due to the complexity of providing effective monitoring and evaluation. Fundo Socioambiental CASA (CASA) partners with civil society organizations to evaluate the potential of launching a funding model in other South American countries based on CASA’s model in Brazil. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to unlock private, public and community resources for grassroots development in Brazil. CASA’s activities assist individuals or other civil society groups to propel their own development, defend their rights, promote inclusion, and advocate for government accountability and transparency.
