Life without bees is unimaginable. Help us to give them food and a home, and end the use of harmful pesticides in our gardens and on our farms.
Bees support not only the variety of the food we eat, but the quality and nutritional value. Their contribution to the global economy for providing free pollinator services is estimated at £130 billion; and here in the UK, around £510 million that is ‘donated’ to the national economy.
Pirates and Slaves: How overfishing in Thailand fuels human trafficking and the plundering of our oceans:
Pressures from over fishing and illegal fishing have led to the widespread use of slavery in the Thai fishing industry.
Pirates and Slaves: How overfishing in Thailand fuels human trafficking and the plundering of our oceans
Publication Date 2015-02-25
The report calls for overfishing, pirate fishing and modern-day slavery in the Thai fishing industry to be addressed as interconnected issues. It examines the complex and multi-faceted problems in Thailand’s fisheries sector and offers recommendations by which the Thai Government and producers, buyers, retailers and consumers of Thai seafood can tackle the root causes of the widespread environmental devastation and human rights abuses in the industry, and collectively secure truly sustainable, well-managed fisheries.
Effective fisheries management in Thailand could help combat pirate fishing, halt biodiversity loss, enable ecosystems and fish stocks to recover, and bring an end to human trafficking and devastating human rights abuses.
Why Thailand should stay on Tier 3 in the 2015 US Trafficking in Persons report
EJF’s review of the Thai Government’s actions in the last year concludes that the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking have not been met, and EJF strongly recommends that Thailand remains on Tier 3 in the 2015 TIP Report, as a clear signal to the Thai Government that a substantive programme of actions and series of reforms must be implemented.
An Advisory Note for the UK Supply Chain on How to Avoid Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishery Products:
EJF looks to inform UK retailers and brands of the risks associated with illegal fishing.
An Advisory Note for the UK Supply Chain on How to Avoid Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishery Products
Publication Date 2017-02-04
The report outlines an approach to prevent IUU fishery products from entering UK supply chains. It offers expert advice on risk assessment and risk mitigation, and encourages action to prevent IUU fishery products entering UK supply chains, which is costly on a number of levels.
Designing and implementing an effective IUU fishing due diligence process provides an opportunity for UK retailers and brands to support the global fight against IUU fishing, and help secure the future viability and health of global fisheries, while also reducing potential reputational and legal risks in seafood supply chains.
Falling Through The Cracks: A briefing on climate change, displacement and international governance frameworks:
An overview of the legal and policy frameworks governing climate-induced displacement at the international level.
Falling Through The Cracks: A briefing on climate change, displacement and international governance frameworks
Publication Date 2014-12-10
Falling Through The Cracks is intended as an overview of the legal and policy frameworks governing climate-induced displacement at the international level.
It aims to inform policymakers and interested individuals about the range of relevant legal and policy instruments and to assess how effective these various options are at responding to the issue of climate-induced displacement.
EJF's briefing highlights the lack of adequate legal and policy frameworks governing climate-induced displacement at the international level. It finds that the 'protection gap' is more like a series of holes, suggesting the need for a new global framework which is both broad in scope and sufficiently sensitive to the needs of multiple populations of concern.
The Gathering Storm: Climate Change, Security and Conflict:
The Gathering Storm: Climate Change, Security and Conflict collates evidence from around the world to show how climate change is acting as a catalyst for conflict and instability.
The Gathering Storm: Climate Change, Security and Conflict
Publication Date 2014-03-27
It demonstrates how some of the most vulnerable people in the world are the first and worst affected by climate change, exposed to negative impacts which erode their human rights and place their homes, livelihoods and cultures at risk.
The report analyses how climate change exacerbates resource competition and water scarcity, generates widespread displacement and risks overwhelming some of the world’s fragile and post-conflict states. It calls for climate change to be recognised as a human rights issue as well as an environmental issue and highlights the need for urgent international action to respond to the human and national security challenges that climate change presents.
