Environmental Justice Foundation

The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) founded in 2001 by Steve Trent and Juliette Williams that promotes the non-violent resolution of human rights abuses and related environmental issues in the Global South. It describes itself as "a UK-based non-profit organisation working internationally to protect the environment and human rights."EJF's core tenet, as set out in its Mission Statement[2] asserts that the injustices suffered by people living in poor and disenfranchised communities are often closely related to the destruction, over-exploitation and other abuses of the local natural environment these people depend on.EJF makes direct links between the western world's demands for cheap food and other goods, especially fish, shrimp and cotton and degraded natural environments in developing countries.In seeking to resolve environmental and human rights abuses, EJF works to give an international voice to vulnerable communities working to protect the local environment that sustains their basic human needs of a shelter, food and income.Its work covers five main campaigning areas: 'Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated' fishing (IUU);pesticide use;cotton production; shrimp farming;and climate refugees. EJF has also campaigned on the issue of the trade in wild animals with NGO partner WildAid.Much of the Environmental Justice Foundation's work involves training[10] and equipping affected environmental justice communities in producer countries to investigate, record and expose abuses and then campaign effectively for an equitable resolution to the issues.
