The Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development of Latvia is the central executive institution responsible for the protection of the environment and nature, maintenance and rational utilization of natural resources, as well as sub-sectors of hydrometeorology and use of subsoil. As such, we lay out and implement the relevant policy, develop the legislative acts, national strategies and programmes, formulate opinions about projects prepared by other institutions, represent the interests of Latvia in international and foreign institutions, and inform the general public.
Environmental Development Association (EDA) is a Latvian non-governmental organisation which seeks to ensure environmental protection and development of policy by enabling financing for environmentally friendly technologies. For this purpose we are mainly engaged in environmental assessments, communication and information activities, and project development. We have for instance been engaged in a Norwegian grant project developing an interactive website to promote household transitions to alternative energy technologies.
