Foundation for International Environmental Law and Development
"We contribute to this through: Advocacy for broader access to environmental justice and fairer international laws and institutions
International laws and institutions have an increasing impact on countries, communities and people. It can be very difficult to understand complicated international processes, let alone influence them. We work to level the playing field and help those at risk to make their voices heard.
Advice and capacity building for groups ranging from poor communities to senior government officials.
FIELD works to empower others and build their capacity long term. We help community groups, advise NGOs, and train government officials in international negotiations.
Research on international law, policy and national practice
The international negotiations that we are engaged in, for example on climate change and biodiversity, aim to tackle unprecedented threats, so require unprecedented responses. FIELD is proud to be contributing to the solutions through our research.
