Civil society and investment in Latin America

This project aims to strengthen the capacity of civil society organisations to better understand and address conflict issues resulting from the presence of extractive and agribusiness companies.

Despite the wealth of natural resources in Latin America, local communities often face instability, weak governance and poverty. This is especially true in those countries that face or have faced violent conflict. In addition, local communities and companies often do not engage constructively with one another or manage conflicts peacefully.
