Environmental Diplomacy Program
The Environmental Diplomacy Program (EDP) monitors and analyzes trends and events in global environmental policies and practices. We gather, analyze and disseminate information and research concerning global climate change and its associated effects on human lifeways and biocultural diversity. With a special focus on international policy, we analyze and compare proposed solutions to the environmental issues that societies face today.
The EDP hosts The Environmental Sovereignty Project, which maintains an environmental law resource database, news bulletin, information repository, document database and publishes occasional papers and commentary on current topics and trends in environmental diplomacy specifically designed for indigenous peoples worldwide.
