Human Rights & Environment

AIDA’s Human Rights Program helps to safeguard human wellbeing in communities in disadvantaged situations exposed to severe environmental degradation, particularly from infrastructure and extractive industries.

AIDA’s attorneys work to:

  • Expand the application of human-rights law to situations of environmental harm.
  • Improve human rights standards and increase accountability.
  • Build the capacity of governments, corporations, and civil society to create and implement stronger human rights protections.
