9. Environmental impact assessments (EIAs)
Environmental impact assessments (EIAs) are a key tool for identifying and mitigating the potential impacts of development projects on the environment and on marginalized communities. These assessments are typically required by law for large-scale development projects, and are intended to provide information about the potential impacts of the project, and to identify measures that can be taken to minimize or prevent harm to the environment and to communities.
At the Earth and Rights Initiative Uganda, we believe that EIAs are an important tool for advancing climate justice and human rights. We support marginalized communities in Uganda who are facing development projects that may have negative impacts on their rights and the environment, and we provide legal and advocacy support to help them participate in the EIA process and to assert their rights.
We also engage with policymakers and other stakeholders to promote the use of EIAs, and to ensure that they are conducted in a manner that is transparent, inclusive, and effective. This includes advocating for stronger EIA laws and regulations, and for better implementation and enforcement of these laws.
Overall, our work on EIAs is an important part of our efforts to support marginalized communities in Uganda to defend their rights and protect the environment. By promoting the use of EIAs, and by providing legal and advocacy support to communities, we aim to create a more just and sustainable future for all.

11. Extractive, mining, oil and gas
An Earth and Rights Initiative Uganda that focuses on the extractive mining for oil and gas would likely work to address the negative impacts that this type of mining can have on the environment and on the rights of marginalized communities. This may involve providing legal and advocacy support to these communities, conducting research and raising awareness about the impacts of extractive mining, and building the capacity of marginalized communities to effectively defend their rights and protect the environment. The specific activities of the organization would depend on its goals and resources, but the overall aim would be to support the efforts of marginalized communities to defend their rights and protect the environment from the negative impacts of extractive mining.
