The information presented in this report is based on the work of the civil society organizations mentioned above, all of which work with supporting communities affected by human rights violations, and with protecting natural resources and the environment.
The collective experience of the NGOs in the network is that violations of the rights derived from the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights occur in Thailand. The violations especially arise in relation to the exploitation of natural resources and the environment, including natural resource management, but also in most of the on-going development projects, which affect not only the country’s environment and the natural resources, but also its people and communities.
