Cooperation, networking and experience exchange are the key enabling conditions for effective NGO works. CEEweb for Biodiversity was established in 1994 to save biodiversity in CEE currently through the work of 59 member organizations from 20 countries. CEEweb has been actively lobbying and advocating for biodiversity and environmental policies at EU and international levels using its network, campaigning capacity and knowledge exchange.
