Countries prioritized “environmental governance” as a key concern to achieving and sustaining global environmental outcomes, in addition to the other top needs: 1) public awareness and environmental education; 2) information management and exchange; 3) strengthening organizational mandates and structures; and 4) economic instruments and sustainable financing mechanisms.

Within the environmental governance context, 79% of respondents highlighted “policy development and enforcement” as the priority constraint and priority capacity development need.

“The main governance need lies in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental policies, legislation, and regulation, including the mainstreaming of [multilateral environmental agreements] into national environmental management and development frameworks.”

The International Network for Environmental Compliance and Enforcement (INECE), the only transgovernmental network of independent practitioners dedicated to pursuing the rule of law, good environmental governance, and sustainable development at all levels of governance, has 20 years of experience building capacity among compliance and enforcement practitioners to make environmental law work on the ground.

Most Americans are unaware that one of the greatest threats to their freedom may be a United Nations program known as Agenda 21. The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division for Sustainable Development created Agenda 21 as a sustainability agenda which is arguably an amalgamation of socialism and extreme environmentalism brushed with anti-American, anti-capitalist overtones.
