YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
UNEP, OHCHR, and the Universal Rights Group are launching a global survey on good practices that aim to support environmental human rights defenders (EHRDs), their work and communities. The survey also aims to identify gaps in existing UN guidance with a view to putting forward practical recommendations for a UN system-wide response to support the rights and particular needs of EHRDs.
Please share your knowledge and experience by responding to this secure survey:
