This chapter provides a critical analysis of recent developments granting nature legal rights. After surveying examples it engages with the philosophical and political objections to implementing rights of nature legislation. The critical question guiding this analysis is whether attempts to safeguard the environment through the existence of legal rights advance ecological goals in a sustained and transformative way.

In this chapter we consider the use and practical value of STEP, the Service Template Extended Process, to support applied HRD research in collaboration with practitioners.
