The Red Latinoamericana sobre Industrias Extractivas (RLIE), of which Fundar, Centro de Análisis e Investigación is a member, launched a new website ( designed to disseminate information regarding key activities being initiated by RLIE.

RLIE is formed by a group of Latin American civil society organizations contributing to the construction of visions and actions that offer alternatives to the current development model, which is dependent upon extractive industries that violate the rights of people and the earth. RLIE undertakes research, creates opportunities for exchanges based on the diverse experiences of different actors, and carries out advocacy in regional and global spaces. The vision of RLIE is to be internationally recognized as a space where members of civil society can jointly elaborate proposals for a post-extractivist, sustainable, just, equal, and diverse Latin America.

The website includes a section for publications - both by RLIE and by other relevant partners in the Americas - related to extractive industries. Featured resources include studies and analysis organized according to the main issues addressed.

The section entitled 'Foros Latinoamericanos de la RLIE' serves as a space to promote dialogue and exchange regarding key issues, including the role of extractive projects in the economy, public revenue, the allocation and use of public funds, climate change and energy transitions, regional integration and human rights, as well as the environment and land management.
