Founded in 1992, Land is Life is a nongovernmental organization working with a trusted network of indigenous leaders, communities, and organizations in the greater Amazon and globally. Over the last grant period, the organization developed a study with indigenous partners of the security threats to environmental defenders of indigenous lands and forests from large-scale development pressures. Over the next grant period, the grantee will implement a tool kit of security tools and strategies with three indigenous communities in the Amazon to protect and prevent violence against indigenous environmental defenders.
