WALHI ("Wahana Lingkungan Hidup Indonesia", or The Indonesian Forum for Environment) is an Indonesian environmental non-governmental organization, which is part of the Friends of the Earth network.

It describes itself as "Indonesia's largest environmental NGO," [http://www.eng.walhi.or.id/kampanye/tambang/tutuptamb/060504_riotintoagm/] and its scope is broader than just environmental concerns: "It stands for social transformation, peoples sovereignty, and sustainability of life and livelihoods." [http://www.eng.walhi.or.id/ttgkami/] The website also reports that WALHI volunteers assisted after the May 2006 Java earthquake in Yogyakarta.
