Despite the wealth of international law that confers rights on Indigenous Peoples and local communities and responsibilities on a wide range of conservation actors, it is often difficult for communities to find effective mechanisms to obtain redress when injustices occur. This paper is intended to help clarify which official redress mechanisms exist and how they can be used. It forms the final part of a series of three papers that aims to serve as a foundation for developing an accessible Guide to Human Rights Standards for Conservation.
