Ending impunity for private sector actors for serious environmental destruction through innovative NGO-driven investigations
This project supports an innovative way to investigate environmental destruction and other illegal activities that contribute to climate change. Prosecutors and other law enforcement professionals direct and coordinate the information collection of NGOs and other experts to build strong legal cases that can be prosecuted in court. This innovative approach will be applied in the context of two cases, namely the large scale environmental destruction and human right violations committed by a Peruvian lead mine and illegal deforestation in Brazil.
The project is supported with 2 950 000 SEK.
