The UN Guiding Principles in Action

(Boniface Dumpe) #1

For small and vulnerable communities, where land rights of smallholder farmers and fisher folks are violated through massive oil spills by multinationals and where the company responsible accepted responsibility over 2 years ago for the damages but continues to foot drag in the process to determine proper and adequate compensation for victims like we have currently in Bodo community in Ogoni Nigeria where Shell is the culprit, how can the application of the UNGP help to remedy the rights of the people.
