A network of resistance to oil activities in tropical countries.

Oilwatch creation was inspired by the need to develop global strategies for the communities affected by oil activities; support their resistance processes because they didn't want to see their territories damaged; work for sustainability and defend their collective rights.

Within the activities of the network are the exchange of information on oil activities in each country, the companies' operation practices, the different resistance movements and the international campaigns against specific companies.

Oilwatch aims to increase environmental awareness at a global level unravelling the impacts of the oil activities in tropical forests and local populations by establishing a link between the destruction of biodiversity, climate change, violations to human rights and the role of the Multilateral Banks of Credit.
