Every week, four people are killed defending the earth. Our mission is for everyone who protects lands, water and forests to be safe and free.

What we do
N1M is a defenders network that connects at-risk activists with support. Building from the frontline we create conferences, safety and psycho-social support, legal action, and emergency responses that care for the whole person. N1M works in the UK, Cambodia, Guinea-Bissau and Brazil.
Spotlight: Guinea Bissau
The defender-led group Nô Recursos Our Resources) works in partnership with Not1More in Guinea-Bissau. The major focus for Nô Recursos and environmental defenders in the country is preventing illegal logging.
Our network in Cambodia works closely with local communities and frontline defenders to conduct public advocacy campaigns, media production, and youth network building for democratic freedoms and environmental protection in Cambodia.
Book: International Human Rights Mechanisms: Defenders Handbook
This booklet is an overview of various international mechanisms for protecting human rights. Many of these processes can be used by people who don’t have any legal training. Individuals and communities seeking resolutions or justice for human rights issues can use this resource to understand the options available and how to apply them.
