The human rights and environmental movements share many of the same goals and concerns. Understanding of their common ground and of the knowledge, methods and resources that each group brings to its work improves the ability of both to realize their shared goal of a world that sustainably shelters and nurtures human and non-human life.
The Environment and Human Rights Resources website, containing resource information on human rights, environmental protection and the links between them, is one component of a three-year project to develop and promote the multiple connections between human rights and environmental protection, to the benefit of both.
Funding for this project is provided by the Richard & Rhoda Goldman Fund.
