The Federation of Environmental and Ecological Organizations of Cyprus was founded in 1988 by a number of the most active environmental Cypriot NGO's. Today, it comprises 16 NGO's members, active in the fields of ecology, environment, culture and human rights issues. The Federation constitutes an umbrella of the environmental and cultural NGO's, co-ordinating and reinforcing their activities. It also participates officially in the political process as a consultant to all government bodies whose activities and policies have an impact on the environment and public health. For example, it represents the environmental community in various committees, institutions and boards in Cyprus :

* Monitoring Committee for the Protection of Nature and Wildlife

* Monitoring Committee for Genetically Modified Organisms

* Committee for Waste Management

* Evaluation of Environmental Impact Assessments, and many others.
