Themis: Managing Natural Resources and Combating Environmental Crime
This publication, produced by the Themis Network, explores the concept of networking, focusing in particular on combating environmental crime. It contains discussion of a number of definitions and operating rules and goes more deeply into practical contexts, such as the work of the National Environmental Security Task Force (INTERPOL). Part 2 of the book explores the possible role of civil society organisations (CSOs) and non-governmental organisations in fighting environmental crime. It focuses on the Organisational Viability Toolkit, produced by the REC in 2009, as a tool to help CSOs enhance their organisational and networking capacities.
The Themis project is implemented by the REC's Law Development, Enforcement and Compliance Topic Area, with funding from the Austrian Development Cooperation.
