Action Group on Erosion, Technology and Concentration (ETC Group)
The ETC Group, formerly RAFI - the Rural Advancement Foundation International, is dedicated to the conservation and sustainable advancement of cultural and ecological diversity and human rights. To this end, the ETC group supports socially responsible developments of technologies useful to the poor and marginalized and it addresses international governance issues and corporate power. The ETC Group also monitors the ownership and control of technologies, and the consolidation of corporate power. In 1993, the ETC group coined the term "biopiracy".

ETC group works in partnership with civil society organisations (CSOs) for cooperative and sustainable self-reliance within disadvantaged societies, by providing information and analysis of socioeconomic and technological trends and alternatives. ETC group does not undertake grassroots, community, or national work.
