Environmental Justice Atlas

“Communities all over the world are fighting to defend their land, water, air or forests threatened by major projects or extractive activities with major social and environmental impacts,” according to the website of the Environmental Justice Atlas , coordinated by researchers from Barcelona’s Autonomous University.

This atlas therefore lists the various points of response around the world, from the Bure nuclear waste landfill site to the Lyon-Turin tunnel, including uranium mining sites in Saudi Arabia and the West Indies, contaminated by chlordecone. For each project, detailed factsheets presenting the history of population mobilization and the different actors involved are available.
