ILEG is an independent, non-profit public interest law and policy organization focused on promoting sustainable development. We work with local communities, governments, the private sector and civil society organizations (CSOs) to ensure fair, balanced and equitable development policy choices to improve peoples’ lives and protect the environment. Our work seeks to transform the way governments make decisions that affect the environment and natural resources on which livelihoods depend. We are dedicated to finding practical options that shift the ways governments make and implement laws and policies, the way businesses operate, and the way people actin relation to the environment.
Established in 2002, ILEG works mainly in Kenya and the wider Eastern Africa region. But our work has significant continental and global reach and influence. We work with our partners in Kenya, Africa and internationally to shape sustainable development decisions for the benefit of present and future generations.
ILEG’s mission is to improve human well-being by seeking a shift in the way governments make and implement laws and policies, the way businesses operate, and the way people act in relation to the environment.
