Forests for a Just Future

Where we work


Gender-just energy policies in Uganda – a fruitful collaboration between AFIEGO and ARUWE

The fair and equitable production and distribution of energy resources, plus access to green and renewable energy, is not only critical for a healthy planet but also an important matter of just societies and futures. Together with our partners, we recognize issues around energy as ecofeminist matters that need a strong feminist human rights-based approach. 

#Herstory of Change – Nadila

As an ecofeminist network, we want to provide space for the stories of inspiring champions in the fields of gender equality and the fight against climate change and environmental pollution. We believe that a sustainable future and environment need feminist solutions reflecting the lives of people on the ground. That is why we work on transformative gender equality and women’s human rights in interconnection with sustainable development and climate justice.


Large-scale forest destruction in Cameroon

Industrial logging and palm oil companies destroy important forests in Cameroon. This is intertwined with human rights violations. In an urgent call for action, we share those concerns with several ministries of Foreign Affairs, the Central African Forest Initiative and the European Commission.


The Green Livelihoods Alliance (2021 - 2025) is an alliance of Gaia Amazonas, IUCN NL, Milieudefensie, NTFP-EP, SDI and Tropenbos International, with Fern and WECF as technical partners.

The Green Livelihoods Alliance (GLA) aims to ensure that tropical forests and forest landscapes are sustainably and inclusively governed to mitigate and adapt to climate change, fulfil human rights and safeguard local livelihoods.

In eleven countries in South America, Africa and Asia, as well as internationally, the Alliance works with Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs) and social movements to:

  • increase the participation of IPLCs in policy and decision-making regarding land rights and forest governance
  • strengthen lobby and advocacy to hold governments and industries accountable for deforestation and human rights violations.
