Tool to Assess the Human Rights and Environmental Implications of Land Contracts

Based on our pro bono support in analyzing land contracts for their human rights and environmental implications, CCSI is developing a tool to assist stakeholders in conducting their own assessments. This tool will explain the main human rights or environmental issues that may be implicated by the underlying deals, note whether the issues are likely to be included in contracts, describe the relevant human rights norms or environmental standards, and provide an overview of best practices. The tool will be provided in two formats: a guidance note that can be downloaded for offline use, and an online tool that maps out the issues, norms, and best practices.
