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 These impacts are a direct consequence of the Bank’s outdated and climate-damaging policies: its Energy Policy, for example, still supports coal power.
malaysia: pursuing citizens' rights in court
Government authorities and companies must abide by the law, be accountable for their actions, and respect the need for public participation in the development of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs).

cyberactions in 2009
Cyberactivists from around the world took action in a number of ways during 2009. Here are some of the highlights.
Agrofuels campaign highlights

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.
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.
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.
