Around the world, increasing demands for land and natural resources are driving unscrupulous businesses into new territories, with disastrous impacts on the environment and communities that call these places home. Ordinary people are finding themselves on the frontline of a global fight against climate change, exploitation, and pollution. With thousands of activists facing daily violence and threats and the tipping point to runaway climate change edging closer, we are urgently calling for change


Every day PBI helps people to safely claim and defend their rights. With our partners, we stand alongside activists to keep them alive and help their work thrive, supporting them to build their capacity and improve their safety. We will support local networks of community activists to demand human rights and environmental health be valued over shareholder profits. We will achieve this through support programmes for activists, awareness campaigns, and targeted advocacy around the landmark COP26
