PILIWA works with the Center for Public Interest Law (CEPIL) and the Legal Resources Center (LRC).  CEPIL is one of the originators of PILIWA and serves as an administrative and financial host for the network.  Our collaboration includes:

  • Assisting a mining-affected to community to gather the scientific evidence needed to identify environmental and health impacts.
  • Fighting alongside a community whose chief is seeking to take villagers’ farmland and sell it to plantation developers
  • Connecting communities facing unjust eviction for destructive development projects with lawyers who can train them on their rights and legal-based advocacy skills.
