LAC Country Environmental Law & Policy Profiles

This section contains profiles – “snapshots” – of the environmental regulatory regime of each country that can serve as a comprehensive but concise guide of the key environmental policies, instruments, institutions and procedures affecting anyone seeking to operate in that market. The profiles cover mostly federal regimes, although in countries where sub-federal jurisdictions play a crucial role, their impact is discussed as appropriate. *

Temas Actuales believes that environmental regimes cannot be considered in isolation from the context of the local realities on the ground, so each profile opens with a brief discussion of the political, governance and economic realities shaping environmental policy in the profiled country.

Profiles also include a handy directory of relevant institutions and their contact information.

Before utilizing the profiles please read the Terms of use, Privacy Policy, Copyright Notice.
