Human Rights Standards for Conservation, Part I: To which conservation actors do international standards apply?

Jael E. Makagon, Harry Jonas, Dilys Roe

Discussion paper, 46 pages

This paper analyses the applicability of international human rights law to those involved in protected area conservation, including states and state agencies, international organisations, businesses, and NGOs. It is the first in a three-part series of technical reports that will serve as a foundation for developing an accessible Guide to Human Rights Standards for Conservation. IIED and Natural Justice are particularly keen to receive feedback on the analysis and conclusions presented.

Project information

Despite increased recognition that conservation initiatives can violate the human rights of indigenous peoples and local communities, addressing 'unjust' conservation remains a contemporary problem. IIED and Natural Justice sought feedback on a series of papers that aimed to serve as a foundation for clear guidance about the human rights obligations of conservation actors, and specific details of the rights and forms of redress available.
