Enhancing public participation and effective enforcement of environmental laws

The DSD has supported the improvement of  mechanisms related to the effective enforcement of domestic environmental laws. This has been achieved through the identification of institutional and capacity-building needs at the country and regionallevels in the Andean Region, the Caribbean countries and Central America.

The DSD has executed several  key activities in this area, including: 

(1) A compilation of existing and proposed Trade Agreements that contain environmental provisions, citizen submissions and similar processes; More...

(2) An analysis of administrative and institutional requirements;

(3) Identification of recommendations on best-practices related to effective enforcement;
