Our environmental governance programme focusses on the rules, practices, policies and institutional frameworks that shape how individuals, organizations and businesses interact with the environment. We focus on three key areas:

  1. Improving coherence and leveraging synergies, where we aim to promote harmony and mutual work relations
  2. Strengthening laws and institutions, where we build capacities to develop, implement and enforce laws and policies that contribute to the realization of sustainable development goals.
  3. Mainstreaming environment into growth and development, where we support mainstreaming of (include, integrate) environmental aspects and safeguards into planning and operations.

In our work to keep the environment clean, healthy and secure, we focus on bridging the gap between research-policy and practice. We also promote availability and access to environmental information.
