Defending environmental defenders

Defending environmental defenders is an alliance of IUCN NL, Milieudefensie, Friends of the Earth International and Global Witness. The alliance improves safety of environmental defenders at risk in Colombia, Peru, DR Congo, Indonesia and the Philippines. Together with local partners, we work on better registration of incidents, we implement safety trainings and measures, we provide legal support and bring people to safety in case of emergency. We also advocate for strengthening environmental defender’s rights on the highest policy level. Defending environmental defenders is made possible by the Dutch Postcode Lottery.
