PNE Multistakeholder Working Group

The Policy Network on Environment's (PNE) driving force is a community of interested stakeholders, members of a dedicated mailing list, open to everyone to subscribe. ‎The community is continuously consulted on the thematic focus of the PNE, its methodology and the so far ‎produced outputs.
Within the PNE is a multistakeholder working group of experts which ‎supports transforming community’s expressed views into concrete actions, such as outputs and actionable next steps. ‎
