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. Robust environmental due diligence (environmental impact assessments), supported by ongoing monitoring and well-resourced closure plans limit these negative impacts. Cowater supports governments in strengthening the institutions that protect the environment, through inclusive policy design and robust inspection training.
