The Centre for Environmental Rights is proud to launch a brand new product designed to support civil society organisations in our collaborative work to ensure mining that is environmentally compliant, transparent and accountable. With support from the Ford Foundation, Prof Tracy Humby from the University of the Witwatersrand’s Oliver Schreiner School of Law led the compilation of a comprehensive review of court judgements, internal appeals and pending cases on mining, prospecting and environment. The review consists of a synthesis report, databases of cases, fact sheets and a short film clip that provides an overview of the findings and recommendations of the review.
