Environmental Governance Indicators for
Latin America and the Caribbean
Tuesday, November 10
A healthy environment is critical to public health, ecosystem vitality, and the sustainability of societies. A majority of countries have endorsed this view and adopted environmental laws or included the right to a healthy environment in their constitutions. However, practice often lags behind the adoption of environmental laws, and to date, there has been very little data to help understand and address this gap.
The Environmental Governance Indicators for Latin America and the Caribbean (EGI) represents the first-ever effort to address this challenge by measuring how environmental governance functions in practice across 10 countries in the region. This study is the result of a collaborative research effort undertaken by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the World Justice Project (WJP).
The two organizations invite you to join us for the launch of the report, which will include a presentation of the main highlights, followed by an analysis of its implications for the region and the world in terms of improving environmental governance.
This event was held in Spanish, with simultaneous interpretation.
