Online mapping tool for social conflicts around environmental issues

Hi all! I want to share with you this useful resource I have been using for a Namati research project, the Environmental Justice Atlas:

The site collects stories from around the world of socio-environmental conflicts; mobilizations by local communities and social movements against the negative environmental impacts of particular economic projects or legislation. The database contains information on the investors, the drivers for these deals, project details, impacts, outcomes, references to legislation, media articles, academic research, videos and pictures.

If you have information on conflicts that are not registered on the map, you can contribute here:


@manjumenon, @kanchikohli, @lauragoodwin, @Goonnan, @meenakshikapoor, @ginococchiaro, @preetivenkatram, this could be useful for the land use change project!
