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.
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.
fighting free trade agreements
Working in collaboration with other civil society groups from all over the world, FoEI has strongly resisted corporate-friendly liberalization proposals at the WTO, with a particular emphasis on the Non-Agricultural Market Access (NAMA) negotiations on natural resources and ‘non-tariff barriers’.
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
The Food Sovereignty Program’s objective is to resist and expose industrial corporate-led agriculture and promote food sovereignty.
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).
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’.
stemming destructive shrimp aquaculture
The shrimp aquaculture industry razes forests and biodiversity, destroys croplands and livelihoods, and wreaks social conflict and human rights violations. Faced with mounting resistance from civil society in Asia and Latin America, the shrimp industry is in the process of expanding into Africa.
friends of the earth international shifts gears in tackling free trade agreements
The Doha Development Agenda (DDA) talks moved into a “deep freeze” in 2006, putting the World Trade Organisation’s quest for a multilateral free trade deal on hold. With that global trade agenda stalled, Friends of the Earth International shifted its campaign focus to regional and bilateral free trade agreements (FTAs).
