AIDA works to strengthen environmental governance and encourage public participation in the Americas. We educate local lawyers and provide informational materials to key decision makers. The most powerful change comes from the bottom up – by forging international alliances and equipping stakeholders with the knowledge and tools to get involved, AIDA builds capacity and expands citizen opportunities for participation.
