Environmental Justice Atlas

Collecting and sharing information and mobilizing communities against environmental injustice, the Environmental Justice Atlas is a "virtual space" for ecological advocates. Readers may want to begin on the About page (under the EJAtlas tab). Here, visitors will find background information on the project, as well as environmental justice, generally. As the About section notes, the Atlas "maps conflicts across 10 main categories," with more than 3,000 cases of ecological conflict included in the database. The Legend section of the Home page explains what each pinpoint signifies (for example, the green leaf is used for "biodiversity conservation conflicts," and the blue icon represents "water management"). Readers may elect to browse the map freely or use the right-hand panel to sort by country, company, commodity, and type. Users can also apply one of the many filters (for example, "impacts" or "outcomes"). Clicking on each pinpoint, users will find information about the conflict, including "the investors ... and their impacts," and "basic data ... [with] project details." Have an idea for a site not yet included? Register an account or fill out a brief survey to contribute. The Atlas is available in seven languages (Arabic, English, French, Italian, Madarin, Spanish, and Turkish). It was created by researchers at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, with support from the ENVJUST project, the Academic-Activist Co-Production of Knowledge for Environmental Justice, and the Transformations to Sustainability Programme.
