Armenia Case Study: Impact of Environmental Organisations on Policy Change

Posted by civilsocietyindex on August 30, 2010

The CIVICUS Civil Society Index Partner in Armenia, Counterpart International, has published their case study on the Impact of Environmental Organisations on Policy Change in Armenia. This case study was conducted as part of the CIVICUS Civil Society Index programme that Counterpart International implemented in Armenia. The study looks into the lobbying and campaigning that the environmental CSOs do in order to get their issues on the decision makers’ agendas. Armenia CSOs relationship with governmental entities has improved through this lobbying and government increasingly solicits CSOs input on various policies that have environmental implications.


The study found that environmental CSOs have a wide range of partners they work with in Armenia and abroad and this has given them the ability to lobby and campaign for policy change with more support. In order for the CSOs to be more effective, it was found that it was imperative that they use a proactive strategy and not one that is reactive to the policies already  implemented.
