About this book

The term "rights-based approach" (RBA) has been used in various contexts and defined in different ways. This publication applies the approach specifically in exploring the linkages between conservation and respect for internationally and nationally guaranteed human rights.

The aim is to promote the realization of conservation with justice, recognising that activities and projects related to conservation can have a positive or negative impact on human rights, while the exercise of certain human rights can reinforce and act in synergy with conservation goals. The publication introduces the concept of RBA and examines how it is currently being applied (or not) and how it may be applied to develop law and policy.
