Environmental Justice and Governance    

Sri Lankan do not enjoy equal environmental rights. The poor and the marginalised people in the society always victimized in the development process.

Access to Justice is very costly. However, compare to many other South Asian countries, Sri lanka has the best environmental and social protection regulations. But enforcement is very unsatisfactory.
