The Asia Pacific region is the most diverse, encompassing groups from the global North and the global South.
Member groups from the region are very active in community-based struggles against mining and other extractive industries. They work hand-in-hand with indigenous peoples, peasant farmers, and fisherfolk to secure sustainable livelihoods and fight against vulnerability to “natural disasters.”
