Paraguay

Our main areas of work include: training of judges, prosecutors and local governments in environmental law to strengthen access to justice in environmental matters; as well as the judicial defense of access rights. A very important accomplishment has been the creation of the “Access to Information Office” in the Paraguayan Ombudsman Office, which has been working successfully since 2006. IDEA was in charge of the whole process that led to its creation, including officers’ training and logistical support.

We are also very active in dissemination of the access rights through the media, and workshops targeted at specific stakeholders.
