Background:
Environmental NGOs and sustainability concerns are marginalized in energy sector and climate policy development. Most environmental NGOs lack competence and capacity to match the influence of the energy sector, and it is generally not accepted that groups of non-experts should have the right to voice their opinion on conflict questions. 

Norges Naturvernforbund has worked with environmental NGOs in Northwest Russia since late 80’s. Step by step the capacity building has been disseminated throughout the Russian Federation.

  • The main umbrella for regional environmental NGOs is Russian Socio-Ecological Union (RSEU). RSEU has coordinated the climate activities since 2008.
  • SPARE was introduced in Russia in 1996. One of the member organizations in RSEU, Friends of the Baltic has coordinated SPARE since 2000 and RSEU climate activities since 2008.
  • DecomAtom is a cooperation between several environmental NGOs. The long-term aim is that an official Russian plan for decommissioning of the old nuclear reactors is made.
