We are people’s organizations and movements from Asia working in communities impacted by coal, gas and oil projects funded directly and indirectly by the World Bank Group. These projects have decimated rainforests, destroyed biodiversity, displaced people, locked many countries in the South into dependency on the fossil fuel industry, and contributed heavily to the escalation of the climate crisis.
