World Commission on Environmental Law

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee governs the activities of WCEL. It is composed of the Chair, the Deputy Chair, Members, and the Director of the ELC (on an ex officio basis).

In accordance with the WCEL By-laws, the Steering Committee is responsible for formulating policy, procedures, and rules of WCEL, and for determining all programmes of the Commission, within the bounds of the mandate and terms of reference as established by the IUCN General Assembly. The Steering Committee also nominates candidates for appointment or reappointment to the WCEL, approves the WCEL budget and annual workplan, and performs such other functions as may be conferred upon it by its individual Members or by the Chair.
