The Centre for Environmental Law and Governance is a Tanzanian non-profit organization based in Dar es Salaam working to promote a well governed society in which rights are respected and protected. CELG was formed in January 2009 by four practitioners in the field of law, governance, human rights, environmental justice, and community development. CELG was officially registered in September 2009 as a company limited by guarantee without share capital.
The realization of good governance through capacity enhancement, rights advocacy and policy engagement achieved through partnering with like-minded stakeholders underlines our organizational mission, and we envision an informed society, in which individuals’ rights are known, respected and protected.
