Welcome to ForestDefender's Instruments Search page!

The instruments in this database are grouped as global, regional and bilateral legal instruments. When you click on an instrument, you are directed to a page that provides you with a range of information.  There is a summary of what the instrument covers and links to the full text, the official website, the States Parties' voting record, as well as any relevant protocols and grievance/complaint processes created by the instrument. Each legal instrument is also broken down into three additional categories: treaties, declarations, and decisions - these distinctions are identified by an icon explained in the legend on the instruments page. You are provided with information about the countries to which that instrument applies as well as specific rights that the instrument implicates
