Natural Justice joins the ICCA-GSI as the global technical partner to provide legal, policy and other technical support for the recognition and conservation of protected and conserved areas, which may fall under any of four main governance assessment types. These include governance by (i.) government, (ii.) various rights-holders and stakeholders (i.e. shared governance), (iii.) private individuals or organizations, usually landowners, and (iv.) indigenous peoples and/or local communities.

Natural Justice is working with 20 of the ICCA-GSI participating countries on four core areas: (i.) national legal analysis, (ii.) international review; (iii.) policy briefs, and (iv.) capacity building and legal reform.
