Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $533,444 over two years to the Swaniti Initiative to support their work providing Indian Members of Parliament with research assistance focused on air quality.
The Swaniti Initiative will staff 25 MPs with one associate each, who will provide research and logistical support to help their MPs engage with air quality in their constituencies and at different levels of government. We see increasing government stakeholder engagement as an essential part of our strategy for improving air quality in India.
This falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of South Asian air quality.
The grant amount was updated in August 2023.
