Representatives of the participating organizations identified their specific issues of interests and discussed cooperation possibilities in order to protect the rights of affected communities and vulnerable people. Land and forest rights, impacts of large scale corporations on people’s land rights, GMO, mining, and water source management are among the issues which are most concerned by participants. Participants suggested following up activities, such as forums for sharing experiences and results of the FTM advocacy. They also designated CIRUM as coordinator and bridging organization for the FTM initiatives in the coming time.
