Vance Center’s Work with Global Witness Featured in Colombian Press

July 2018

Vance Center Environment Program client Global Witness this month released its sixth annual report, documenting among other matters the increasingly brutal attacks on Latin American land and environmental defenders as a result of booming agribusiness, logging of tropical forests, and mining in the region. The report highlighted the Vance Center’s ongoing work with Global Witness to protect these defenders, and articles in the Colombian newspapers El Espectador and El Tiempo noted this work, as well.
