We believe that by working collectively we can better advance the integration of human rights in our field.
Established in 2009, the Conservation Initiative on Human Rights (CIHR) is a consortium of international conservation NGOs that seek to improve the practice of conservation by promoting the 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 the 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.
CIHR membership is comprised of the following international conservation organizations: BirdLife International, Conservation International, Fauna & Flora International, The Nature Conservancy, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Wildlife Conservation Society, and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
