Environmental governance

Extraction of minerals and hydrocarbons is disruptive to ecosystems, with long-term effects beyond the lifecycle of the extraction itself. Communities, flora, and fauna are vulnerable to atmospheric, water and ground pollution. We help mitigate these negative impacts through robust environmental due diligence (environmental impact assessments), monitoring and well-resourced closure plans. Cowater International additionally supports governments in strengthening the institutions that protect the environment through inclusive policy design and robust inspection training.
