Advocating on Behalf of Communities Across Africa

Project summary

The Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide (ELAW) will provide critical legal and scientific support to public interest environmental lawyers across Africa who are challenging environmental injustices and protecting communities. Communities across Africa are suffering the impacts of a major push for resources, energy, and land. ELAW will reach out to lawyers who are defending communities and protecting the environment, support the work they are doing, and connect them to each other. ELAW will help build a strong corps of lawyers across Africa who are fighting for environmental justice.
