EarthRights International (ERI) is a group of activists, organizers, and lawyers with expertise in human rights, the environment, and corporate and government accountability. Since 1995, ERI has worked in Burma to monitor the impacts of the military regime’s policies and activities on local populations and ecosystems. Through their training program, ERI trains young environmental activists from diverse ethnic backgrounds in Burma to empower young leaders with skills and knowledge to work on earth rights issues in their communities. In addition, ERI works alongside affected community groups to prevent human rights and environmental abuses associated with large-scale natural resource projects in Burma.
