As a coalition, we work through an integrated approach based on 4 pillars:
Radical transparency: using technology to collect evidence
Thanks to new radar satellite technology and evidence collected by local communities and forest rangers from inside the forest, we are able to know where deforestation and human rights violations take place, accurately and quickly. We systematically investigate – both in the field and globally- who is responsible. In some places, we also map indigenous territories for full recognition of land rights.
Full responsibility: acting through legal, campaign and advocacy strategies
Once illegal activity is identified, partners take coordinated action in order to stop those destroying the forest and affecting the people that depend on it. As a coalition, and based on what Indigenous Peoples and local communities decide, we mobilize public opinion and put them under public scrutiny, we activate law enforcement, and/or start a national or international lawsuit.
Indigenous land rights: supporting structural change
We advocate for acknowledgment and enforcement of the land rights of Indigenous Peoples and collective settlements at all possible levels. We organize national and international support for the rainforest and their inhabitants. We support activists and environmental and social defenders in improving their integral safety
Linking and learning: generating networks and collective learning
We bring people together to share experiences and learnings on lobby and campaign strategies, as well as on solutions to technical problems. We aim to innovatively record and share our lessons, technology and new insights so that we and others around the world can take advantage of this knowledge. In a later stadium, we want to upscale our approach, because our ultimate goal is to stop deforestation and human rights violations all around the world.
