Fracking Resources

Mercy Global Action at the UN introduced a four-page brief on fracking and human rights, which defines both fracking and human rights law and briefly explores fracking’s impacts on key components of the human rights to health, water, food, housing, access to information, and to public participation as outlined by international law. The issue brief summarizes the longer Guide to Rights-Based Advocacy: International Human Rights Law and Fracking. For a more in-depth analysis of fracking’s impacts on human rights, you can download the full guide from the Mercy World website. The documents are available in English and Spanish here:
