funding and membership support
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.
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.
Opposing the certification of palm oil, jatropha and sugar cane monocultures
Our campaign to expose the role that agrofuels corporations have played in misleading the public was heard by the UK’s Advertising Standard Authority, who ruled that an advertisement placed by the Malaysian Palm Oil Council and aired on the BBC was misleading because it said that Malaysian palm oil is sustainable.
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.
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.
Economic Justice - Resisting Neoliberalism (ejrn) program
The overall goal of the EJRN program for 2008 was to create 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.
south africa and mozambique: east and southern africa unite against oil
Along the quite shores of Lake Albert, which is the sacred source of the Nile, the Dublin-based Tullow Oil company is developing an oil refinery complex using the crude found in this pristine part of Africa. How much longer will Lake Albert keep its beauty, how much longer until the environmental injustice and ecological and human violence of the Niger Delta is brought to bear on this part of the world?
southern africa: challenging the spread of agrofuels
Northern corporations and governments are rushing to obtain cheap land in the South, to produce agrofuel feedstocks. This presents a very real threat to local communities and Indigenous Peoples, whose land is being targeted. It is often claimed that community land is ‘under-utilized’ or ‘marginal’ in order to justify disowning people of their traditional land rights, yet this threatens to displace and dis-empower millions of small-scale subsistence farmers in the South.
africa: mapping the expansion of agrofuels
Switching to agrofuels has been portrayed as a golden opportunity, a ‘green’ solution that could tackle the world’s energy crisis and help to mitigate climate change. Industrialized countries, international financial institutions such as the World Bank, and multinational agribusiness, oil and transport companies are all promoting agrofuels as a panacea to the world’s problems.
new members, executive committee and chair
Members of Friends of the Earth International voted in new members, a new chair, and a new executive committee at the 2008 Biannual General Meeting in Honduras.
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.
