Milieudefensie is an association with 84,000 members and donors and has been working for a sustainable and honest Netherlands since 1971.The organisation focuses on five main themes, which are Food, Energy, Traffic, Forests and Raw Materials. It works with people at a local, national and global level and is a member of Friends of the Earth International.

Milieudefensie contracted ODS to provide guidance on advocacy opportunities and essential actors within the EU agro-policy context for the Green Livelihoods Alliance (GLA). For this project, we used a multifaceted approach which included making use of the GLA's own available information; involving a number experts who are familiar with various policy fields and providing out-of-the-box thinking to explore new and innovative ways to achieve the desired objectives.
