Chapter 17: Developing and sustaining environmental compliance and enforcement networks: lessons learned from the International Network on Environmental Compliance and Enforcement

Jo Gerardu, Meredith Koparova, Kenneth Markowitz, Durwood Zaelke and Gunnar Baldwin


Over the past four decades, considerable efforts have been made to improve the management of human relationships with the environment. Countries have created environmental agencies, negotiated multilateral agreements and undertaken new initiatives at the local, national, and international levels to protect human health, limit greenhouse gas emissions, conserve biodiversity and wildlife, and manage natural resources. These efforts have involved leaders in governments, parliaments, and the judiciary, in international organisations, businesses, and civil society, and in other sectors of society. Environmental officials have often been at the forefront of efforts to promote the rule of law and good governance through work to advance sustainable development objectives.
