The International Network for Environmental Compliance and Enforcement (INECE) is an international partnership established in 1989 to promote effective compliance and enforcement of domestic environmental laws and international environmental agreements through networking, capacity building, and cooperation. INECE is dedicated to using regulatory and non-regulatory approaches to guide compliance with and enforcement of environmental laws and regulations that promote the sustainable use of natural resources and the protection of ecosystem integrity at the global, regional, and national levels.
INECE links the environmental compliance and enforcement efforts of more than 4,000 independent experts - inspectors, prosecutors, regulators, parliamentarians, judges, and non-governmental organizations - from 120 countries, dedicated to pursuing the rule of law, good environmental governance, and sustainable development at all levels of governance. INECE is the only global network exclusively dedicated to this critical mission.
Earthpace provides direct support for the day-to-day operations of the INECE Secretariat, providing strategic guidance, partnership building, regional network development, and capacity building workshops. Earthpace manages key priority projects of INECE, including on climate compliance, emissions trading, and performance measurement. Earthpace also designed and maintains the INECE web site, and develops regular new content for INECE's web site, newsletters, and email updates.
