Environmental Rights Database

Over the last two years, with the help of UNEP and OHCHR, I identified more than 100 good practices in the use of human rights to protect the environment.  The practices were described in my last report to the Human Rights Council, and individual descriptions of the practices are available at the OHCHR website.  Now the practices are also available on a standalone website, environmentalrightsdatabase.org, which is easily searchable by categories of human rights, types of actors, location of the practice, and other key words.  A permanent link to the new website has been added to the menu on the left of this home page.
