AIDA (Interamerican Association of Environmental Defense) is a nonprofit environmental law organization that works across international borders to defend threatened ecosystems and the human communities that depend on them. Environmental health and human rights can no longer be protected by working within the political boundaries of individual nations: the 35 countries of our hemisphere are united under a common environmental flag. International problems call for international responses, and AIDA develops transnational strategies to address the environmental and human rights challenges of the 21st century.

AIDA conducts its efforts according to four basic principles:

1) Encourage transnational collaboration

2) Protect human rights

3) Cultivate the power of international law

4) Encourage citizen enforcement and public participation
