Download a summarized version of the 2009 annual report.
gender highlights
For FoEI, a fuller comprehension of the harsh realities faced by women in different countries and regions across the world will help us construct better and more effective campaign strategies, and change the way we ourselves act. These changes will enhance FoEI’s ability to contribute to real and lasting change that works for both women and men.
Resisting oil, mining and gas program highlights
The Resisting Mining, Oil and Gas Program is based on a vision in which the world does not depend on minerals, oil and gas. Its objective is to dismantle corporate control over minerals, oil and gas, and to stop the destruction and violations of communities and ecosystems.
Forest and Biodiversity program highlights
The Forest and Biodiversity Program’s objective is to strengthen and promote sustainable local initiatives for the protection and local use of forests and biodiversity. We resist and mobilize against destructives practices, actions and policies that destroy forests and biodiversity. We also work to build and strengthen, a global movement for forests, biodiversity and the communities that depend on them, in the medium and long term.
denouncing corporate driven policies
FoEI has been one of the most active groups working on the topic of trade and climate change. Through policy articles, press releases, public interventions and seminars, we have highlighted how the ‘development-as-usual’ approach of the EU in particular, has aimed to expand corporate-friendly trade rules by deregulating and liberalizing energy markets: this contradicts its own commitment to fighting climate change.
disclosing the truth, building awareness and mobilizing against corporate abuses
In 2008, FoEI continued campaigning on specific corporations in sectors that harm the environment. This entailed research and monitoring of EU-based companies working in the oil and gas, agrofuels and forest extraction sectors, and their actions in the South.
Economic Justice - Resisting Neoliberalism (ejrn) program highlights
The EJRN Program’s objective is to build sustainable societies by building people’s power and dismantling corporate power, stopping corporate-led neo-liberalism and globalization, and challenging the institutions and governments that promote unequal and unsustainable economic systems.
advancing foei’s food sovereignty agenda
The Nyeleni Forum, was crucial in helping FoEI to frame its Food Sovereignty Program, continue to build strategic alliances with La Via Campesina, increase the visibility of the food sovereignty movement, and act more effectively at both the grassroots and international levels.
Climate justice and energy program highlights
The CJE Program’s overall objective is to build a diverse, effective and global movement for climate justice. Climate justice is a right-based approach to the climate crisis with holds those historically responsible for the climate crisis to account. Climate justice demands structural changes to tackle neo-liberalism and radically reduce consumption. In keeping with FoEI’s mission to influence policies and policy dialogue, the CJE Program also aims to ensure that by rich industrialized Annex I countries commit to needed emissions reductions, and appropriate and sufficient financing and transfers of technology to help developing countries mitigate and adapt to climate change, allowing a just transition to sustainable, fossil-free societies.
uruguay: global europe publication
The European Union is promoting an agenda of aggressive trade liberalization, called ‘Global Europe’. Through Global Europe, the EU is pushing to liberalize services in Southern countries; gain access to and control over strategic reserves of natural resources; liberalize government procurement; protect intellectual property rights; increase protection for European investments; and eliminate so-called ‘trade barriers’.
atalc: working together with indigenous peoples in the fight for climate justice
Many of the people most affected by the impacts of climate change are Indigenous Peoples and local communities who have not previously been engaged in or able to influence the development of climate change policies.
redd publication: reducing emissions from deforestation in developing countries
In December 2008, the FoEI Climate Justice and Energy program launched a comprehensive critical analysis of United Nations negotiations on the REDD mechanisms. REDD is an acronym for "Reducing Emissions from Deforestation in Developing Countries".
