This guide by the Health of Mother Earth Foundation (HOMEF) is brilliantly easy to use and understand. It is an invaluable resource for training and teaching environmental monitors in communities across the world. It goes through logical and clear steps from reviewing your local environment then monitoring the impacts of activity to reporting, distributing and using legal and media advocacy. Whilst the guide was made with oil field communities in Nigeria in mind, the layout, advice and procedures will lend themselves well to any community seeking to protect their environment and health through effective monitoring and reporting.

This Documentation Manual is rooted in a groundbreaking collective international feminist project that began in the mid-2000s and that sought to create, build and promote an analysis about women human rights defenders who experience violations because of who we are and because of what we do. The related international campaign, titled Defending Women Defending Rights, was also first of its kind. This was a mobilisation to bolster activism for women’s rights, generally, and also to focus on the human rights and experiences of activists themselves. In other words, the campaign sought not to focus only on women’s human rights broadly, but also and primarily on the experiences of activists, organizers and defenders of those rights.
