Faced with the deteriorating situation of environmental human rights defenders during the pandemic, how can the conservation community respond more effectively? Specifically, how can the IUCN Secretariat, membership networks and partner efforts be mobilized and strengthened? This webinar brings together environmental defender voices, conservation organizations and others with high level participation of the UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights Defenders, Ms. Mary Lawlor and the IUCN Director General, Bruno Oberle. Several IUCN Congress events, resolutions and activities address the needs and rights of environmental human rights defenders. How to respond effectively in a context of uncertainty? The event will also launch the film “Responding to the Environmental Defenders Crisis”.
