Environment and Human Rights Advisory is a non-profit corporation chartered in the state of Oregon. Its work is to provide information and analysis services nationally and internationally to government agencies, private firms and environmental organizations regarding the human rights dimensions of their work.

We provide formal, thoroughly researched Human Rights Impact Assessments (HRIAs) to environmental organizations, government agencies and private firms upon request.

We also collect and publish personal narratives of those who have been directly impacted by adverse environmental events or conditions.
