CELDF’s International Center for the Rights of Nature is spearheading the advancement of the Rights of Nature around the world. The Center is assisting civil society, indigenous peoples, communities, and governments to advance Rights of Nature laws and policies. This includes providing legislative and policy drafting, legal research, public engagement and education, and trainings.
Communities in the United States and the country of Ecuador have worked with CELDF to establish the first Rights of Nature laws in the world. Today, CELDF and partners are working in India, Nepal, Australia, Cameroon, Colombia, the United States, and other countries on the Rights of Nature.
