Most of ADAP’s intervention areas are those on the last “frontiers” with resource extraction processes. Once these extraction processes develop, they lead to rapid changes at the local level, for which community actors are often ill-prepared. In this sense, ADAP views its partnerships with local partners as long-term relationships. ADAP envisions not disengagement at the end of a support program, but rather a transformation in the support relationship. From a driving role at its inception to a more responsive role when its partners express more and more specific needs.

ADAP becomes progressively involved in the advocacy of its local partners. It supports their networking at the national and international level and promotes their inclusion in civil society networks that are committed to defending communities’ rights.
