Extractive industries, tourism and infrastructure (ETI)

Extractive industries, tourism and infrastructure (ETI)

GFC’s newest campaign aims to protect forests and the rights of communities through advocacy around relevant mining, infrastructure and mass tourism mega-projects. It was created at our Member’s Assembly in 2018 due to common concerns from many GFC member groups about the impact of extractive industries and tourism and associated infrastructure projects, in particular those financed through the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Capacity was directed towards fundraising and organising a workshop for GFC members and allies on the China BRI. This meeting took place in February 17-18, 2020 in Bogor, Indonesia.
