Read the policy brief on criminalisation of defenders by Land Rights Now
There has never been a more critical time to protect land and environmental rights and the people who put their lives on the line to defend them.
More and more ordinary people are finding themselves on the frontline of the battle to defend their land and territories from corporate or state abuse and unsustainable exploitation.
Many violations are invisible, and the situation is set to become worse as competition for access to natural resources and land grabs intensify against a backdrop of extreme global inequality.
ILC members and their partners face threats, criminalisation, violence, and killings for defending the rights of local communities, peasants, pastoralists, and Indigenous Peoples to their land and environment.
ILC is aware that, to tackle the sensitive and fragile situation of land and environmental defenders around the world, a strong network of actors is needed.
