Intergovernmental organizations

There are also environmental Intergovernmental Organizations that group governments at the regional and local level, as distinguishable from the national level. Examples are the network of regional governments for sustainable development [1], the ICLEI-Local governments for sustainability [2] and the Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA) [3]. These organizations use the method of open coordination to share policy best practice and provide assistance and counsel to partners on issues related to environmental development following the UN Millennium Agenda. These networks can be seen as international organisations and have observer status in the different UN environmental organizations.
