Event Advisory for the Launch of the Environmental Rights Initiative

United Nations Environment Programme ; United Nations Environment Programme (2018-03-06)

Environmental rights are enshrined in over 100 constitutions yet almost four people a week are killed defending those rights, while many more are harassed, intimidated and forced from their lands. Around 40 -50 percent of the 197 environmental defenders killed in 2017 came from indigenous and local communities.
