The foundation has competence, experience, partners and infrastructure. It has been able to develop and maintain long-term dialogue with the government, parliament and the private sector, and has been able to influence many decisions affecting the environment. But to successfully continue the work financial resources are needed.
The project aims to activate civil society to defend environmental interests and develop sustainable resource management within governmental and nongovernmental initiatives; to form a favourable climate for the functioning of NGOs operating in the environmental sector. Project implementation will allow the foundation to maintain existing human resources; provide quality work in the field of environmental advocacy and strengthening of civil society; organize educational events; develop cooperation between the Latvian environmental NGOs; keep in touch with all levels of national and international institutions, target groups, partners and volunteers.

Project results: 1. Integration of environmental interests into policy documents, legislative acts, other documents and decision making processes.
2. Development of the functioning of non-governmental organisations has been encouraged, as well as cooperation resulting in mutual communication, preparation of joint positions and defence of joint interests.
3. Promotion of international cooperation to strengthen environmental protection positions.
4. Understanding has been developed among various target groups and society as a whole regarding the relevance of environmental issues and conditions for sustainable development.
