Background

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is making a public call for inputs to solicit good practices related to the promotion and implementation of the environmental rule of law with a focus on (1) laws, (2) institutions, (3) civic engagement, (4) rights and (5) justice. Select good practices will be included in the UNEP 2021 Global Report on Environmental Rule of Law (the UNEP 2021 Report).

Through this “researchathon”, UNEP seeks to consult with a wide range of stakeholders in preparation for the UNEP 2021 Global Report on Environmental Rule of Law and to enhance the implementation and understanding of the environmental rule of law by promoting good practices and success stories.

The term “good practice” for the purposes of this initiative is defined broadly to include any law, policy, case, institution, practice or initiative that contributes to positive environmental outcomes and/or effective environmental governance. Good practices can be implemented by a wide range of actors, including all levels and branches of government, international organizations, civil society, communities and individuals, as well as the private sector. The practice identified should be substantiated by evidence that demonstrates how the practice facilitates the promotion and implementation of the environmental rule of law within the context of one or more of the above five topics (i.e. (1) laws, (2) institutions, (3) civic engagement, (4) rights and (5) justice).
