About this grant

Environment-People-Law (EPL) is a leading Western Ukrainian non-governmental organization promoting the environmental rights of citizens through advocacy, education, information and legal assistance.Multiyear funding will enable EPL to organize its work according to four major program areas: advocacy, legal clinic, European integration, and outreach. In addition, EPL will further develop staff capacity and expand its local base of support.Significant accomplishments over the past five years include operating a highly successful environmental law clinic program through which more than 70 law students received training in public interest law and worked on more than 200 environmental cases; working to protect the Danube Delta, for which the organization’s senior lawyer won the prestigious Goldman Prize in 2006; and actively participating in the Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide network, including hosting its 2004 annual meeting.
