Protecting the planet’s wildlife and wild places for future generations means ensuring that our conservation actions safeguard the rights and wellbeing of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities and the health and security of our staff and partners. We believe that deploying effective social safeguards is not a one-size-fits-all solution but requires an adaptive approach and a meaningful engagement with rights holders. Our global policies guide our local practices and provide the framework for our continuing commitment to respecting social safeguards and international human rights.
