Friends of the Earth Africa (FoEA) is a collective of sovereign organisations working with grassroots communities on environmental and rights-based struggles in the African region. We seek to contribute to the strengthening of national groups in Africa by developing collective strategies to understand, expose and dismantle the root causes for the overlapping crises we are facing in the region. 

Through continent-wide co-ordination, FoEA works to build people power towards a common African agenda for environmental, economic, gender, and social justice.
