In 2009, Amigos de la Tierra América Latina y Caribe (ATALC – FoE Latin America and the Caribbean) coordinated member group participation in all international programs, ensuring a regional perspective in global campaigning.
ATALC has become a recognized body bringing forward a social-environmentalist perspective among social movements in the region, with a visible role in spaces like the Americas Social Forum. ATALC groups also have sub-regional campaigns, such the EU-Central American free trade negotiations (involving FoE groups in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Costa Rica), plantations and pulp mills in the Southern Cone (involving groups in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Brazil), and the building of climate affected peoples' movements in Central America and the Andes.
