The TAI members in Brazil have focused many of their recent efforts on discussing and disseminating information about the environmental democracy challenges in Brazil including using Brazil’s Law on the right to Information. The Brazil Coalition is also supporting advocacy on the Regional Latin America and the Caribbean Principle 10 process.
Article 19, a member of the Brazil coalition, works with activists to develop and promote policies that protect freedom of information and freedom of expression. They train the media to actively demand for government transparency and accountability and works on the implementation of Brazil’s access to information law. Article 19 also works to empower local communities to demand access to information about water and seeks to hold the government accountable for large infrastructure and other expenditure due to the World Cup and Olympics.The Original TAI coalition in Brazil carried out an assessment in 2005. New organizations and individuals have joined TAI in 2014, and they are increasingly engaging around the Principle 10 process in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the results of the Environmental Democracy Index in Brazil.
