Centro Ecuatoriano de Derecho Ambiental (CEDA)

The Centro Ecuatoriano de Derecho Ambiental –CEDA (Ecuadorian Center for Environmental Law) is a nonprofit organization established in May 1996 by a group of young lawyers and professionals that identified the need to disseminate information and knowledge about environmental law in Ecuador so as to improve its application and enforcement.

Sixteen years have passed since then and currently CEDA has a broader and more specialized team that is still working to provide legal, economic and technical instruments to aid in the formation and implementation of environmental legal structures.   CEDA also promotes public participation processes that aim to protect collective rights and strengthen institutions as a means to achieve sustainable development.

The work during these last sixteen years has been demanding and challenging. In its first decade, CEDA has contributed to the formation of Ecuadorian environmental law and has been part of policy-making processes. CEDA has provided counseling services, carried out studies, workshops and publications. CEDA has also designed and carried out several training events in environmental law at various universities and public and private institutions in Ecuador and abroad.
