Download a summarized version of the 2009 annual report.
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.
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.
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.
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).
exposing ineffective climate change policies in international financial institutions
FoEI monitored the World Bank's framework on 'clean energy investment' and the emissions-trading schemes promoted by the various international financial institutions (IFIs). The World Bank’s Climate Investment Funds (CIFs) were a key focus: FoEI actively engaged in different decision-making arenas to express our concerns about the Bank's proposals. FoEI believes that the World Bank is the wrong institution to manage climate change funding. It has unequal decision-making structures, continues to invest massively in fossil fuels, and considers coal a potentially clean source of energy.
strengthening the movement: climate justice now!
In 2008, social movements and groups that came together during the climate change negotiations in Bali (December 2007) established a new coalition called Climate Justice Now!
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.
december: poznan climate talks
Each year the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change holds negotiating sessions known as the "COP" (conference of parties). The most recent one was COP14, that took place in Poznań, Poland in December 2008.
