Event description
Environmental Rights - Embedding Human Rights in Conservation

About this event

NGOs are often on the frontline of the ecological crisis. We need to do more to protect environmental defenders (e.g. in the face of, for example, worrying & growing trends in Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation). But while they often rely on human rights and other laws to protect the planet, several recent cases show where operations can go wrong in complex landscapes. Examples of human rights abuses, violations and/or failures to respect indigenous rights, such as upholding requirements for prior informed consent (PIC), have made headlines in recent times.

In this event, we discuss some recent examples and encourage why we all need to do more to uphold #AllOurRights. What questions do NGOs need to be asking to get it right and do as we ask of others?

How do we "Embed Human Rights in Conservation”?

We will discuss the recent findings of a WWF independent expert report https://www.wwf.eu/?uNewsID=1216466
