Victory in Belize

ELAW Bulletin 1/15/16

ELAW partners in Belize have won a strong victory for citizens who want a voice in decisions about proposed developments.

The Supreme Court ruled that government agencies must give citizens a real opportunity to review and comment on plans for a development.

This ruling should ensure that citizens have a meaningful voice in building a sustainable future in Belize.

ELAW's law and science team worked closely with partners in Belize to secure this victory.
