2015 for E-Tech was a year where a number of our interventions “came unstuck”, sometimes after over a decade. Various commitments to work in Ecuador, Peru, and newly-oldly in Mexico became defined, through hard work on behalf of those affected by large scale extractive industry environmental impacts. All problems weren’t solved and the state of work in Mexico is at an earlier stage. The politics of each country and impacts of poorly regulated industry did not enter into some feel-good pastoral alternative universe. But substantial steps forward were made along clearly defined paths.
