The EDO ACT actively engages in policy and law reform of ACT and Federal environmental laws. Our law reform engagement is informed by:
- our specialist knowledge as public interest environmental lawyers
- the experiences of the community organisations we represent
- incorporating and synthesising the knowledge of expert environmental scientists
- environmental law experience in other States and Territories (through membership of the Australian Network of EDOs) and worldwide (through the Environmental Law Alliance)
Our law reform activities often involve submissions to government or parliamentary inquiries; reports and projects; and policy advice to government as a member of an expert panel or stakeholder reference group.
