The TAI coalition in Ecuador seeks to promote new and better laws, policies and practices related to the rights of information, participation and justice in environmental decision-making. These principles work to promote transparency, anti-corruption efforts, accountability and confidence in the relationship between citizenry and government.
Centro Ecuatoriano de Derecho Ambiental (CEDA), collaborating with Fundación Esquel and Coalición Acceso, carried out the first TAI assessment of the implementation of Principle 10 of the Rio Declaration in Ecuador during 2004 and 2005. In 2009, the TAI Ecuador coalition promoted a national dialogue between citizens, private sector, authorities and NGOs working in the environmental field, oriented to draft a proposal for a national environmental information strategy. In addition, the TAI Ecuador coalition has been very active in the Principle 10 process for Latin America and the Caribbean, participating in the negotiations and helping to create the zero draft of a binding regional agreement on Principle 10.
