Earth Rights Institute is designed to be an equilateral knowledge platform, where local people collaborate with academics and development professionals both local and foreign by exchanging skills, experiences and knowledge to solve crucial development issues such as widespread poverty, land right disputes, and environmental degradation.

ERI believes that the empowerment of local communities begins with re-conceptualizing the role and meaning of ‘expert’ in development models.

We are bringing development studies back to local communities so that the development knowledge and strategies are cultivated locally, and ‘experts’ of sustainable development are formed at the grassroots. This means that the power and authority to manage local development lies with the local people.

We maintain a strong commitment to achieving measurable results and the highest standards of increased integrity, transparency, and accountability.social inclusion and inequality, productivity and innovation, and economic integration. We concern ourselves with gender equality and diversity, climate change and environmental sustainability; and institutional capacity building for developing well-being societies.
