Citizens are partially encouraged to assist with law enforcement. The state has issued laws that contribute to the enforcement of the Forests and Wildlife Law, including: the creation of the Forest National Council (CONAFOR), the Law on the Right of Citizens Participation and Monitoring Rights, the Regulations on Transparency, Access to Environmental Public Information and Participation and Consultation in Environmental Issues. However, CONAFOR has not been implemented, nor can citizens exercise their citizenship, i.e. the right to make requests and demand state accountability.
Also, there is a constitutional recognition of the rights of citizens to participation, transparency and access to public information.
