The #FAO 's current definition of 'forests' helps to promote deforestation. Any area covered by trees could be counted as a forest under this definition. But forests are complex ecosystems. The biological diversity of non-tree elements that make up a forest and the cultural importance of the interaction between forests and communities is overlooked. You might as well call a swimming pool a lake.

Including the investor-state dispute settlement (#ISDS ) mechanism in the EU-US trade agreement could risk seriously deterring governments from introducing regulations that protect people and the environment. Please sign and share this petition from #SumOfUs  
Europe's politicians could be about to give corporations the power to overturn our laws.

“It is now beyond argument that #HumanRights law includes obligations relating to the #environment” #JohnKnox
 
“It is now beyond argument that #HumanRights law includes obligations relating to the environment,” UN expert John Knox says while urging countries “to take these obligations into account in the development and implementation of their environmental policies”: http://sm.ohchr.org/OhHdON

Mr. Knox’s appeal came during the presentation of his first comprehensive report to the UN Human Rights Council #HRC25 on the human rights obligations relating to environmental protection.

Friends of the Earth Netherlands/Milieudefensie wants to reduce environmental damage caused by our electronic products. This not only means that metals must be extracted with more care, but that we must use less metal as well. Electronics manufacturers can do much to improve the situation. They can take responsibility for the mines and the factories that make their products and design products that last longer and are suitable for reuse. #Milieudefensie and Friends of the Earth have assessed whether manufacturers of smartphones, tablets, laptops and game consoles are open about their use of materials. https://www.milieudefensie.nl/english/mining/
