The TAI coalition in the Dominican Republic seeks to understand and improve the current state of access rights in order to achieve the implementation of Principle 10. More specifically, the coalition focuses on the problem of poor participation of the community during the EIA process and the lack of general awareness about environmental rights.The national lead organization for the Dominican Republic is the Instituto de Abogados para la Protección del Medio Ambiente (INSAPROMA). INSAPROMA works to promote conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources and the environment, as well as the protection of human rights, environmental health, the rights of consumers and the promotion of good governance.INSAPROMA worked with WRI and several other Caribbean TAI partners on a project to build the capacity of civil society to shape public policy reform in the Caribbean to protect biodiversity and ecosystem services. INSAPROMA focused on the Reserva de Biosfera Jaragua-Bahoruco-Enriquillo as a case study. The TAI coalition in the Dominican Republic has also been involved in the Principle 10 process for Latin America and the Caribbean. They play an important role in the process, since the government of the Dominican Republic has helped to coordinate the regional process.
