Land is Life

Land is Life is a collaborative network of indigenous communities that plays an important role in the international struggle for indigenous peoples’ rights, strengthening the participation of indigenous peoples in the international political arena, while at the same time providing critical support for their efforts at the local and national levels. In our work, we advocate for free prior and informed consent on all issues where indigenous peoples’ lives are affected. We provide training and financial support for indigenous leaders to be present before international policy-making bodies where decisions are made that affect their lives, territories and livelihoods.
