The CDCA aims to research and share information on environmental conflicts, particularly by elevating the voices of affected local communities in the global south.
Mission and Purpose
The CDCA — Centro di Documentazione sui Conflitti Ambientali (English: Documentation Centre on Environmental Conflicts)'s "mission is to research and provide information about both the causes of the environmental conflicts produced by the exploitation of natural resources, and its consequences. These often include a disregard for local communities rights, particularly in the global south." 
CDCA aims to facilitate public discussion on these issues in Italy and beyond by providing first-hand information and data as well as giving voice to local communities. 
Origins and Development
The CDCA was founded in October 2007 as part of the Italian Association, “A Sud”.
