In 2009, Focus’ activities in the Reclaiming the Commons programme spanned local, national regional and international levels. We were able to achieve a good balance of research, writing, mobilisations, train- ing and public education, and network- ing with social movements and organisa- tions at multiple levels.
Focus continued to deepen its understanding of and involve- ment in climate change and climate jus- tice campaigning and worked to build the climate justice movement.
Focus sta from all country o ces par- ticipated in seminars, conferences and workshops on the global nancial crisis, relating global trends with national and regional conditions. Through research, writing, presentations and other outreach activities, Focus sta also tried to show how global economic and nancial trends a ect particular sectors and constituen- cies such as agriculture, farmers, migrant workers, urban and rural poor families, and women.
