National Conference on Environment and Human Rights: Environmental Justice in Mongolia

The Mongolian Constitution provides its people with the right to a healthy and safeenvironment. Although the Law on Environmental Impact Assessment and the Minerals Law includeprovisions to inform and consult with communities in issuing minerals licenses or in undertaking anydevelopment project there are no procedural rules on how to implement these provisions. This conference, organized in partnership with Fredskorpset Norway, examined how the destruction of water sources and degradation of pasturelands have been severely affecting the traditional livelihood of nomadic communities. It aimed to provide participants with an opportunity to get up‐to‐date comprehensive knowledge of international mechanisms for environmental justice such as UN Declaration on the Rights ofIndigenous People, the Aarhus Convention, the Convention on Biodiversity and others. In English and Mongolian.(Original source: http://www.owc.org.mn/chrd/)
