About this project

We actively promote North-South equity and the preservation of livelihoods. We observe, analyse and act. In doing so, we focus on the politics and economics of the North with their worldwide consequences. The situation of marginalised people in the South is the starting point of our work. Together with our members and supporters as well as with other actors in civil society we intend to represent a strong lobby for sustainable development.

We actively promote North-South equity and the preservation of livelihoods.

We are an independent development and environmental organisation which lobbies for sustainable global development. For us, sustainable development means socially equitable, ecologically sound and economically stable development.

We observe, analyse and act. In doing so, we focus on the politics and economics of the North with their global consequences.

In Germany, Europe and on the global level, we observe actors relevant to the achievement of our goals. Using science-based analyses, we inform the public, educate and lobby, and inform consumers how they can support our goals through their own actions. To this end, we are closely connected with development and environmental organisations worldwide.

The situation of marginalised people in the South is the starting point of our work.

Politics and the structure of the world market as well as the increasingly imitated resource-intensive economic system of the North influence people's lives worldwide. Unbridled globalisation endangers the existence of a large number of people in the South, who are marginalised or threatened with the loss of their ecological and economic livelihoods. We campaign for conditions which assure a sustainable future, especially for these people.

Together with our members and supporters as well as with other players in civil society we want to be a strong lobby for sustainable development.

Our team is highly motivated, and our work is based on long-term expertise in the development and environmental sector. With creativity and strategic vision, we intend to steadily approach our goals.

Why do we need your donation?

Donations are the main pillar of our budget, along with membership fees and project grants. Every single free donation is important because it expands our scope for effective lobbying in development and environmental policy. We would therefore be very pleased to receive your donation – however large it may be.
