Advocacy

A human rights based approach to Environment protection is a collective effort requiring strong leadership and strict laws.

Even in the surge of Industrialisation “Take Over” in Kenya. CJGEA believes that, for sustainable development to be achieved, environment monitoring, protection, conservation and governance must never be compromised. Communities must be alert to the danger of environmental impunity and be empowered to stand against:-

  • Pollution
  • Deforestation
  • Land degradation

Monitoring of industry. Eflluent and flu gases that pollute the the soil, vegetation, oceans, lakes and other water bodies are monitored. This is imparative since Environmental violations often impact directly on the fundamental rights of communities. Rights to a clean and healthy environment, socio-economic Rights, rights to the highest attainable standards of health as guaranteed by the Kenyan constitution.

Rights hoders are educated while the capital holders and duty bearers monitor to protect the rights of communities. Under this programme CJGEA employs:-

  • Campaigns for the environment and human rights.
  • pettitions
  • lobbying
  • picketing
  • advocacy
  • highliting human rights and environmntal violations to push for quick urgent sollutions.
