My Guide - Know Your Rights Related to REDD+: A guide for indigenous and community leaders

The Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) has produced two complementary tools - ForestDefender and My Guide - that are geared towards safeguarding forests and sustainable livelihoods. These tools apply CIEL\'s "rights-based approach," which integrates respect for human rights into laws and policies. CIEL created these resources in response to specific requests from partners, local community members, indigenous peoples. They help translate relevant international law to the national level and empower lawyers, activists, and community leaders to defend their rights and their forests.
