Source International is a non-governmental organization that works with communities dealing with environmental pollution and health problems principally caused by extractive industries. Source International provides high-level technological and scientific support completely free of charge to the communities with whom it works, helping them to assess the damage to the community’s resources and enabling them to promote restorative actions. In addition, the organization train local leaders, called promoters, so they can develop and promote their own environmental and social monitoring systems. Thanks to the work of Source International, communities are able to negotiate better deals and obtain remedies and compensations for activities that take place inside their territories.
