Environmental Defenders Security Framework

Between 2003 and 2015, nearly 900 indigenous people were murdered in Brazil. We are currently witnessing an increase on rural conflicts, land expropriation and violence. Frontline environmental defenders are being killed in record numbers. In partnership with Not1More, the overall objective of this project is to reinforce the capacity of environmental defenders around the world, to protect human rights and alert duty bearers. This framework is being designed in consultation with environmental defenders to address their urgent needs for appropriate, tailored security support; means to overcome impunity and access legal aid; and to improve access to international support through networking.
