 Who We Are


The Conservation Initiative on Human Rights (CIHR) is a consortium of international conservation organizations that seek to improve the practice of conservation by promoting integration of human rights in conservation policy and practice. CIHR members have come together because of a common interest in promoting positive links between conservation and rights of people to secure their livelihoods, enjoy healthy and productive environments and live with dignity. We believe that by working collectively we can better advance our work in this field, including through shared learning among conservation organizations, rights-holders and stakeholders, and expert groups.
