Fondo Ambiental Quito

The Environmental Fund is a public and autonomous institution, part of the Municipal Government of the city of Quito (MDMQ), which works closely with the Department of Environment, governing body of sectorial policies on environmental issues in the city of Quito, that directs its efforts to facilitate the implementation of plans, programs and projects through partial grant funding proposals that primarily promote conservation and local sustainable development with emphasis on improving the environmental quality of urban, rural and peripheral areas of the Metropolitan District of Quito.

Environmental Fund resources come from both environmental fines and fees and donations from individuals or corporations, domestic or foreign, and are used to finance investment projects, annual or multi-annual, framed in the Environment Sector Strategy of MDMQ.
