Environmental Legal Fund

In March 2011, we established a legal fund to enable local NGOs (GEN-GOB and Amics de la Terra) to take action against development projects and public works that severely threaten the environment. An exemplary success in the courts for the NGOs has been the halting of the urbanization of Cap Llentrisca (Llentrisca Creek), an area highly valued for its floristic diversity. Environmental action taken to the courts forces decision makers to think more carefully before agreeing to illegal development projects.

Between 2011 and 2015, we provided €18,490 in grants to GEN-GOB and Amics de la Terra to this legal fund.
