Securing rights in landscapes
Human rights and nature conservation are intertwined. People’s right to have an healthy environment and to breath clean air for example, cannot be secured without nature being protected.
But the right to enjoy an healthy environment doesn’t come without duties. We also have to take care of nature in order for nature to take care of us.
Over the past decade people and especially scientists started to look at places as a landscape. Not only as a geographically defined place, but also as networked spaces that are driven by production, consumption and development. These spaces are impacted by the global challenges of our time such as climate change, biodiversity loss and health threats.
How do all of these drivers work together, how can the complexities between these drivers be explained? What rights and duties do we have when it comes to the protection of the environment, but also human rights? Read the report on ‘Securing rights in landscapes’.
