Our Vision Until 2022

Vision 2022

We work towards sustainable societies in Latin America that combine respect of life and nature, with economic and social justice, which fulfill universal human rights and promote a peace culture.

FFLA looks to promote and contribute to four structural changes on a regional level that allow for the reversal of structural causes of unsustainability:

1 An inclusive and integral political model
2
A sustainable management of natural resources
3
The reduction of inequality
4
The reduction of violence and the construction of a peace culture

Change 1: An inclusive and integral political model

We aim to contribute towards a Latin America in which public institutions on a local, national and regional level work under inclusive and integral approaches towards long-term visions, considering interculturality as a fundamental element.

Expected effects by 2022:
  • A civil society that has a greater capacity to contribute to the construction of public policies on sustainable development.
  • Decision-makers who have the tools to integrate sustainability into public policies.
  • Spaces for multi-sector dialogue in order to develop the construction of visions orientated towards sustainability.
  • An adequate integration of sectors and territorial scales for the elaboration and application of public policies.
Change 2: A sustainable management of natural resources

Our goal is to promote an increase in policies and practices on the sustainable management of renewable, natural resources in Latin America; based on the articulation of interests of diverse stakeholders.

Expected effects by 2022:

  • Greater capacities within the State and civil society to hold dialogues relating to the sustainable management of renewable natural resources.
  • Agreements on the access, use and control of natural resources alongside the fair distribution of benefits derived from their use.
  • Processes widely spread and implemented that transform socio-environmental conflicts linked to the management of natural resources.
  • Systems of good governance for the management of natural resources and the promotion of sustainable development.
  • Spaces for dialogue and reflection between diverse public and private stakeholders.

Change 3: The reduction of inequality

FFLA works towards gaining commitment from public and private stakeholders in Latin America to promote the access and fair distribution of resources and richness, sharing the costs and benefits of development.

Expected effects by 2022:

  • An empowered civil society, participating actively and responsibly in development processes.
  • Vulnerable groups with the capacity to demand their rights and assume their responsibilities.
  • Stakeholders with capacities and sufficient information to dialogue and reach agreements thus reducing the asymmetries of power.

Change 4: The reduction of violence and the construction of a peace cultureThe reduction of violence and the construction of a peace culture

We seek to promote actions and attitudes within public and private stakeholders to reduce direct, structural and cultural violence, assuring the fulfillment of human rights.

Expected effects by 2022:

  • Greater capacities within the State and civil society to practice non violence.
  • Strengthened social cohesion on local and national levels.
  • Stakeholders that know and recognize their rights and duties.
