Mainstreaming Multilateral Environmental Agreements into Environmental Legislation in Nicaragua

Under the auspices of the GEF intervention, the proposed Project will strengthen the national judicial system and adjust it to present-day changes and conditions in the country’s reality, as well as needs to protect the natural environment. MARENA, the agency in charge of national environmental management, will build up its technical and financial capacities to efficiently promote a better application of legal instruments and elevate its level of compliance.

The project’s overall goal is to increase local and national capacities to enforce environmental legislation, in particular the Special Law on Crimes against the environment and natural Resources in support of the Rio Conventions.
