About:

  • ETC Group is dedicated to the conservation and sustainable advancement of cultural and ecological diversity and human rights. To this end, ETC Group supports socially responsible developments of technologies useful to the poor and marginalized and it addresses international governance issues and corporate power.
  • ETC Group works in partnership with civil society organizations (CSOs) for cooperative and sustainable self-reliance within disadvantaged societies, by providing information and analysis of socioeconomic and technological trends and alternatives. This work requires joint actions in community, regional, and global fora.
  • ETC Group’s strength is in the research and analysis of technological information (particularly but not exclusively plant genetic resources, biotechnologies, and [in general] biological diversity), and in the development of strategic options related to the socioeconomic ramifications of new technologies.
  • ETC Group works primarily at the global and regional (continental or sub-continental) levels. ETC Group does not undertake grassroots, community, or national work. ETC Group supports partnerships with community, national, or regional CSOs but ETC does not make grants or funds available to other organizations. We do not have members.
