About this grant

Created in 2008, the Latin American Network of Environmental Public Prosecutors is comprised of 300 public prosecutors from 19 Latin American countries. Over the past project period, the Network organized six conferences in six countries in Latin America that focused on social and environmental protections for major infrastructure investments and precedent-setting legal cases in Latin America. This grant to Uniselva Foundation will enable the grantee to develop and publish educational materials, organize training events, and expand communications among prosecutors working in 19 countries in Latin America.
