australia: stopping the flow of agrofuels in the asia pacific region
The agrofuels sector is expanding rapidly, with so-called ‘biofuels’ being marketed as a clean, green solution to climate change and oil vulnerability. The Australian government is expected to look more and more to Asia for imports of agrofuels feedstocks, such as palm oil, in future years.
Indonesia/Sri Lanka: Asian Peoples' Movement against the 'Asia Destructive Bank'
Although the Asian Development Bank has established a Carbon Fund, a Renewable Energy Fund and a Climate Fund, its professed commitment to addressing climate change is completely undermined by the fact that ADB-backed projects have many negative social and environmental impacts, with many contributing directly or indirectly to climate change. This in turn impacts on the most vulnerable and marginalized people in the region. These impacts are a direct consequence of the Bank’s outdated and climate-damaging policies: its Energy Policy, for example, still supports coal power.
european groups: challenging oil and steel giants
Friends of the Earth Europe is campaigning to raise awareness about the impacts of extractive industries. Many developing countries have large reserves of natural resources, such as oil, gas, coal, gold and copper. But decades of irresponsible oil, mining and gas exploration have produced devastating social and environmental effects in many developing countries.

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.

our biodiversity, our lives photo competition and calendar
Friends of the Earth International ran our fourth annual photo competition in 2009 on the theme of "Our Biodiversity, Our Lives" to mark the occasion of the United Nations' International Year of Biodiversity in 2010.
community testimonies
Across the world, communities are affected by the pressing environmental problems of our day. All too often, it's big business, governments, and even large NGOs that have the loudest voices. The communities who have to live with the consequences of these environmental issues can struggle to get their opinions heard.
member groups
Friends of the Earth International is made up of the activities and actions of our 76 member groups, and it is our mission to support and strengthen their work at the local level.
Agrofuels campaign highlights
The campaign’s main objective is to stop the production, trade and consumption of agrofuels, by raising public awareness about its negative impacts on local communities and globally.
Agrofuels campaign highlights in 2008
The main goal of FoEI's agrofuels campaign is to halt the development, production and trade of agrofuels, which is threatening food sovereignty and biodiversity, and has been shown to be a false solution to the climate crisis.
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.
Using legal strategies to defend people from corporate abuses
FoEI aims to effectively expose and counter corporate crimes and their social, environmental and human rights impacts, specifically on women’s and men’s productive and reproductive activities, as well as countering corporate influence over governments and institutions such as the international financial institutions (IFIs), the World Trade Organization (WTO) and other institutions.
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.
halting destructive projects
In 2008, we continued to work on numerous national and international campaigns to halt projects financed and/or promoted by international financial institutions (IFIs) and multinational corporations, that threaten the livelihoods of vulnerable communities by damaging the environment and decreasing local control over resources.
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.
focusing on the links between industrial agriculture and trade
In 2008, FoE groups from all regions compiled case studies focused on defending territories and land rights from agribusiness and controversial agricultural expansions, such as deforestation for palm plantations in Asia or land evictions for soy and tree monocultures in South America.
Food Sovereignty Program highlights in 2008
In 2008, FoEI’s Food Sovereignty Program contributed effectively to the implementation of the agenda agreed by the food sovereignty movement at the Nyeleni Forum, (the first International Forum for Food Sovereignty organized in Selingue, Mali, in February 2007).
