This is in solidarity with all the communities resisting fossil fuel projects at huge risk.

Thanks also to Urgewald and the authors and contributors to the Five Years Lost How Finance is Blowing the Paris Carbon Budget & Indigenous Environmental Network: Indigenous Resistance Against Carbon reports, which provided the case studies, data and analysis to be able to create this resource for our global day of action.

Below is a breakdown of banks and insurers financing the fossil fuel projects spoken of in each case study, along with links to the origins of the stories and quotations.
