EcoLegis: Cross-cultural Collaboration and Dealing with Databases
Developed by: FARN
Type of resource: Web case study
Target audience: General
Cost: Free access
The EcoLegis environmental legal access facility is the result of a cooperative effort between FARN in Argentina and REC in Hungary. Both organizations had legal databases that they had been developing on an ongoing basis since 1993 for FARN and 1995 for REC. While several similarities and positive differences existed to make the project viable, a certain amount of collaboration was needed to launch an integrated project online.
