Environmental crimes are posing an irreversible threat to #ecosystems and communities, causing financial and social losses. Some of these crimes also fall into the category of serious organised #transnationalcrime as criminal groups and networks are increasingly engaged in what is currently representing a growing lucrative opportunity.

+UN Environment and +UNICRI – United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute are partnering to better equip the international community with research and best practice recommendations to effectively address these crimes by launching the Environmental #ruleoflaw project: advancing #justice, #governance and law for #environmentalsustainability.

The objective of this project is to provide Member States with options to consider for the development of holistic approaches to enhance their ability to address #environmentalcrimes.

Not all heroes wear capes. The more migration will be addressed as a security problem only, the more the international community will fail in reaffirming #peace, #humanrights and prosperity for all its global citizens.
