The Ecosystem Alliance

The Ecosystem Alliance



In October 2014 the Ecosystem Alliance and its partners from palm oil and soy producing countries came up with a call for action as a result of learning and exchange on strategies.

The Ecosystem Alliance is a collaboration between IUCN National Commitee of the Netherlands (IUCN NL), Both ENDS and Wetlands International and their offices and partners in more than 16 countries. It unites a broad network of international and local NGOs to help local communities manage and use ecosystems in a sustainable way, among others to face climate change.

The Ecosystem Alliance seeks to give local communities a voice in the international arena where many decisions relevant to their natural environment are taken. It seeks to support and improve the livelihoods of the poor and to create a green and inclusive economy, through participatory and responsible management of ecosystems.  Through IUCN NL the Alliance also collaborates with HIVOS.  The work of the alliance is sponsored by the Dutch Ministry of International Affairs.

This webtool is primarily meant for international exchange about specific themes and meetings of common interest for learning and advocacy purposes among the Ecosystem Alliance partners and beyond.

La Alianza Ecosistema es una colaboracion entre UICN Comite Holandes, Both ENDS y Fundacion Humedales (Wetlands Intenational), sus oficinas y partneres en mas que 16 paises.
