International Council of Environmental Law

The International Council of Environmental Law (ICEL) was formed in 1969 as a public interest organisation promoting exchange and dissemination of information on legal, administrative and policy aspects of environmental conservation and sustainable development, to support new initiatives in this field, and to encourage advice and assistance through its network.
ICEL focuses on collecting and disseminating documents on international, regional and local environmental law and policy. To improve access to information and expand contacts between environmental lawyers, ICEL initiated the creation of a broader network of associations, institutions, and academics. This network is active in the field of environmental law and policy in the interest of the development, negotiation, review and implementation of Agenda 21, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), existing multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) and international environmental governance (IEG).
ICEL is comprised of over 220 individual and 15 corporate members distributed across 10 regions covering all continents. ICEL is directed by a Board of Governors (international governors and two regional governors, elected by each of the 10 regions). The Board elects two executive governors, as well as individuals and institutions proposed for membership in ICEL.
