Conservation Standards

The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and Natural Justice collaborated during 2013-14 with a group of lawyers and experts on the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities to clarify the following issues:

  • Which conservation actors have responsibility for upholding international human rights standards?
  • Which international human rights standards are most relevant in a conservation context?
  • Which redress mechanisms are available to indigenous peoples and local communities when human rights are infringed by conservation initiatives?
