Traditional farming and indigenous communities fight to protect their lands, their waters and their natural resources. But, communities have been forced to abandon their lands due to development projects by polluting companies that forcefully displace them and make them live without their territories.
Their livelihoods depend on their land for food, shelter and cultural identity.
Pollution from mining threatens their way of life, as mining can seep into their lands and waters. Sustainable development has been very critical due to extractive practices.
