Governance & Sustainable Development

Governance refers to the political, social, economic, institutional and administrative systems in which society is organized. IIDMA’s  scope of work in the field of governance for sustainable development is:

 

  • Assistance in the development of governance institutional systems for environmental protection and sustainable development.
  • The study of the legal–institutional regime for the protection of the environment at the international, community and national levels.
  • The correct implementation and enforcement of environmental law as well as issues related to transparency, public participation and access to justice in the field of the environment.

The main projects we have done in this field are:
