Rights for Ecosystem Services (RES): a framework to protect the environment and sustainable local communities in the EU.

Project description

Researching the legal rights of sustainable local communities

With climate change being an ever-present danger for communities worldwide, many people are taking measures to prevent or at least lessen its effects. In this context, questions have arisen about whether the legal instruments of the local communities that hold environmentally sustainable practices will be enough for them to continue to do so. The EU-funded RES (Rights for Ecosystem Services) project aims to focus on non-indigenous local communities in the EU, researching the intersection of EU and national law, and constructing a theoretical and legal framework that could better allow for the rights of local communities to be recognised.
