OLCA prioritizes the search for environmental protection and justice in the solution of controversies. It supports local communities by improving their capacities in the management of conflicts and by bringing them in contact with other experiences on environmental conflicts in Latin America.

OLCA gives training, technical advice and support to different groups of population, including indigenous communities, farmers and fishermen, in the defense and management of their environment and in the promotion of their environmental rights. OLCA has also created spaces to share resources and experiences among local environmental groups and fostered the development of thematic and territorial networks supporting community-based responses to the growing pressure on the environment and the natural resources.
