Direct Support to Frontline Communities

RAN’s Community Action Grants are designed specifically to strengthen the capacity of Indigenous and frontline communities and to support grassroots leadership.

Answer

Indigenous and frontline communities suffer disproportionate impacts to their health, livelihoods and cultures from the effects of global climate change and from destructive and extractive industrial mega-projects.

From plantation expansion into rainforests to mountaintop removal coal mining; from illegal animal poaching to illegal land grabs; from massive water-source contamination to massive carbon pollution from profit-driven land management—frontline communities live with the highest environmental impacts and the related costs in human rights violations and species extinction.
