New study on the rights of nature movement in Uganda by Matthew Hopewell
In mid-2019, the Government of Uganda enshrined the Rights of Nature into the National Environmental Act. This study explored how eco-centric law was able to enter national-level decision-making processes through an analysis of the discourse and strategies employed by a close network of proponent non-governmental organisations. The research finds a network of NGOs mobilised to generate new legislation which serves as a tool to ensure local communities and indigenous peoples' can realise greater recognition and protection of their customary-ecological-governance systems, sacred-natural-sites and traditional food systems. This highlights the role NGOs can play in supporting a transformation towards more socially and ecologically just environmentalism.
