UN’s Environmental Rights Initiative

This Initiative represents the next phase of UN Environment’s work on human rights and the environment. The Initiative will bring environmental protection nearer to the people by helping them to better understand their rights and how to defend them; by working with media to improve coverage of rights issues; by calling on the private sector to move beyond a culture of compliance to one where environmental rights are championed; and by assisting governments to implement environmental rights obligations.
