About The Liaison Office (TLO):Background: The Liaison Office (TLO) is an Afghan non-governmental organization, founded in 2003 as a Swiss peace pilot project (supported by the Heinrich Böll Foundation). TLO’s main areas of interventions are: Research, Peace building, Rule of Law, Access to Justice, Environment and Natural Resource Management, Education and Humanitarian Aid. The Environment and Natural Resource Monitoring Network (ENRMN) was established in 2012 with Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung (HBS) financial assistance and the financial supporting continues until now. TLO has been supporting the ENRMN Network over the past 2 years. The main objective is to strengthen the capacity and enhancing the coordination and cooperation between the members to influence relevant policy formation and enforcement.
On annual basis, an organizational member is elected as secretariat of the network after election during a general assembly meeting. The secretariat holds regular Board of Directors and General Assembly meetings. Additionally, the secretariat in close consultation with members has to conduct capacity building workshop for members capacity enhancement, lobby and advocate for policy related changes, hold press conferences on hot environmental and natural resource issues and establishment and operationalization of various committees like independent monitoring and evaluation committee, media committee, monitoring, research and advocacy committee and provincial committees. It has been observed that the network has lost the momentum to progress in line with the planned activities. Some obvious setbacks notably decision making on key issues, delayed implementation of the planned activities, members losing interest and deviations among the members are evident. Goal Policies and strategies related to environment and sustainable and equitable use of natural resources are implemented. Objectives The (non) implementation of environment related policies and strategies (e.g. water) is advocated and influenced by the improved performance of target groups; and
CSOs enable selected communities to claim their rights to sustainable and equitable use of natural resources in the extractive sector. Besides undertaking an internal review of the network in August 2019, as stock taking of progress made against the planned tasks, TLO has also engaged an international consultant to assist with the self-evaluation of the HBS funded portfolio projects, including the ENRMN. The consultant’s report was shared and discussed with ENRMN Board as well as in a general assembly meeting with members in February 2020. All members’ feedbacks and suggestions were taken into account in the final report. According to the findings of the self-evaluation, the root cause of the current situation is that the present constitution gives a single vote to all members, whether large, reputed agencies or individuals who have just joined the network. This voting structure has apparently allowed a particular group of network members to get enough of their own community in key positions and thus control the network. To make sure that ENRMN can live up to its original vision and mission, regain its legitimacy and be seen to as a national platform, the constitution has to be revised. The essential revision shall help to avoid the possibility that through elections one group can control a majority of positions. Additionally, the governance structure is set to facilitate timely decision-making processes and eventually the network function more smoothly and effectively.
