AbstractThis manual developed from a project of the Science and Human Rights Program of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to explore the intrinsic connections between environmental protection and the realization of many of the economic, social, and cultural rights enumerated in international human rights conventions and treaties. The central premise of this initiative is that it is not possible to promote human rights without at the same time working to improve implementation of environmental and public health standards and guidelines. By fostering a wider understanding of economic, social and cultural rights to include environmental protection, the project seeks to provide a broader and more meaningful basis for collaboration among organizations in the human rights, environmental and public health communities.
