MARTINEZ, Nain  and  CHAVEZ RAMIREZ, Refugio. New actors in environmental management: The case of the civil society in Ensenada. Estud. front [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.29, pp.85-123. ISSN 2395-9134.

The environment is a complex space where multiple interests converge, so the traditional government has been insufficient to respond to the new demands of the environmental management. In this sense, the theory governance suggests a bigger role for social actors in decision-making for a more effective resolution of environmental problems. This article focuses on the Civil Society Organizations (CSO's) of Ensenada, due to its relevance in the public sphere and the ecological value of the area. Twenty two csos, its participants and the network of actors were characterized through a survey. It was found that three types of csos are focusing on the conservation agenda and urban sustainability.

Keywords : environmental management; civil society organizations; governance; networks.
