ELAW partners are celebrating 10 years of good work protecting local communities and ecosystems – from the Atacama Desert to the wild rivers of Patagonia. ELAW has collaborated with Fiscalia del Medio Ambiente’s (FIMA) fearless founder, Fernando Dougnac, since 1994 — four years before he launched FIMA. Fernando and FIMA staff member Andres Pirazzoli attended this year’s ELAW Annual Meeting.
