  • Organisation

    Natural Justice: Lawyers for Communities and the Environment, the lead organisation is a not-for-profit organisation registered in South Africa and Kenya with hubs in Cape Town, Nairobi and Dakar.

    This project involves several grassroots organisations in Africa, all but one of which are ICCA Consortium Members; national, regional and global networks (e.g., Defending the Defenders Coalition); and other key organisations working with defenders, especially in Africa (e.g., Front Line Defenders, IUCN-Netherlands).The project is closely linked to the Africa Defenders Fund, implemented by Natural Justice in partnership with the International Land Coalition (ILC) and ICCA Consortium. The Environmental Defenders Collaborative (a pooled fund) has previously expressed interest to support the ICCA Consortium’s work on defending territories of life and their defenders.
    The bulk of the project activities are based on mini proposals prepared by ICCA Consortium Members, which set out their self-determined plans and priorities for this project. Their proposed efforts are aimed at strengthening and recognising the work of Human Rights Defenders in Africa in general and their community’s grassroots defenders in particular. It will also support them to engage with the 2021global mobilisation campaign, which is expected to take place during the week leading up to International Human Rights Defenders Day on 9 December 2021, if this aligns with their local/national priorities.

    • Project

      Solidarity with African Environmental and Land Defenders aims to support indigenous peoples and local communities and their grassroots organisations in up to seven countries in Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, DRC, Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda and Madagascar)in their efforts to resist and be protected against such threats as they defend their collective lands and territories of life. The actions and forms of support are both defensive and preventative in nature and respond directly to their self-determined needs and priorities, including, inter alia, awareness campaigns, trainings, digital and physical security measures, legal support, and communications platforms for regional and global advocacy.

      The project supports indigenous peoples and local communities to remain on their customary lands and territories and continue their self-determined ways of life and livelihoods. In addition,  the project supports indigenous peoples and communities, especially those who are routinely marginalised and discriminated against and face multiple intersectional inequalities, to advocate for legal and political recognition for their contributions to conservation and sustainable development and for their rights and collective responsibilities to defend their lands and territories.
