The Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA) is a public interest environmental law organisation which seeks to promote environmental justice, sustainable and equitable use of natural resources, democracy and good governance in the natural resources and environment sector. ZELA’s work is mainly anchored on a core group of rights which are reflective of natural resources governance namely Environmental, Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (EESCR).
 
Through this newsletter, we get to share with you relevant updates as we drive our mission of promoting environmental justice through sustainable and equitable utilization of natural resources and environmental protection.

 Operation "No to Anarchy by Artisanal Miners" launched

Violence against women and children affects 1 in 3 women in their lifetime. A spate of machete violence inspired ZELA and other partner organisations to start the #Stopthemachete campaign and we are happy with the launch of the operation dubbed “No To Anarchy by Artisanal Miners”.Click here for more information.

Transparency and accountability are building blocks of a good reputation

The World Bank has urged government to practise transparent and consistent reporting, expand gender diversity and to reduce political interference in the operations of State-Owned Entities (SOEs).
This comes as government has provided wrong figures of financial aid provided by the Chineese and US governments.Click here for more information.
