Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement – the Environmental Violations Portal

CER attorneys have developed a tool to assist with articulating, reporting and keeping a record of environmental violation reports to the correct authorities – the Environmental Violations Portal.

The Activist Support and Training Programme uses this tool to guide and encourage community and civil society partners to report environmental violations and keep a record of their attempts to hold polluters and authorities accountable for compliance and enforcement of environmental laws.

Violation reports generated through the portal may also justify an increased investment in enforcement capacity in the National Departments responsible for mining, water and sanitation and the environment.
