funding and membership support
sustainability school
The annual Sustainability School convened by Friends of the Earth Latin America and the Caribbean (ATALC) provides space for a new form of learning and information exchange in Latin America and the Caribbean. Now in its third year, it is also forging strong new links between member groups, and with allies in the region.
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.
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.
strengthening the fight for a GM-free world
The fight for a GM-free world is still a priority for the food sovereignty movement. In 2008, FoEI continued providing a comprehensive assessment of the impact of genetically modified (GM) crops in agriculture.
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.

programs and campaigns highlights in 2009
In 2009, Friends of the Earth International had six active international programs and campaigns. Within these we coordinated a wide range of actions at the international, regional, national and local levels, that improve the ability of peoples and communities around the world to secure sustainable livelihoods and protect our environment for generations to come.
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. These groups mobilize people, resist socially and environmentally damaging projects and policies, and help to transform their societies in tens of countries around the world. Their local work in turn allows us to campaign on the regional and international levels, and to seek political support for the rights of people everywhere to sustainable livelihoods and for social, economic, gender and environmental justice.
peru: challenging camisea: campaign targets devastating gas project
Possibly the Amazon’s most damaging fossil fuel development, the $1.6 billion Camisea Gas Project has pushed two pipelines through a globally-significant Amazon biodiversity hotspot. It aims to extract gas inside the Kugapakori-Nahua State Reserve, where Indigenous peoples live in voluntary isolation from society.
atalc: building a regional communications strategy
Friends of the Earth Latin America and the Caribbean (ATALC ) was created in 2001 to provide member groups with a stronger regional role. Yet to gain more influence over the region’s political spheres and social movements, ATALC must increase its public profile. Two years ago, ATALC’s executive committee realized a comprehensive, coherent communication strategy was required to achieve this.
peru: civil society success in mining conflict management
The operations of Southern Copper Corporation (SCC), one of the world’s largest copper producers, have caused severe social, health and environmental problems in Peru’s Ilo province for decades. Thus this project sought to improve civil society’s capacity to influence and manage negotiations with this mining company. Particular focus was placed on increasing civil society’s capacity to assess impacts and propose technical solutions, and to negotiate effective compensation for damage caused by SCC.
netherlands: tackling climate injustice and world bank funding for fossil fuels
Spiralling emissions from burning fossil fuels are already causing glacier melt, worsening droughts and rising sea levels. Yet international financial institutions (IFIs) including the World Bank continue to fund fossil fuel projects that will add to this damage. And although the bulk of the emissions which cause climate change stem from developed countries, it is people in the world’s poorest regions who suffer the greatest impacts.
