Who We Are & What We Do
Natural Justice: Lawyers for Communities and the Environment is a non-profit organization, registered in South Africa since 2007.
Our vision is the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity through the self-determination of Indigenous peoples and local communities.
Our mission is to facilitate the full and effective participation of Indigenous peoples and local communities in the development and implementation of laws and policies that relate to the conservation and customary uses of biodiversity and the protection of associated cultural heritage.
We work at the local, national, regional, and international levels with a wide range of partners. We strive to ensure that community rights and responsibilities are represented and respected at the broader scales and that gains made in international fora are fully upheld at lower levels.
