Abstract

This paper reviews the literature on environmental nongovernmental organizations’ (ENGOs’) digital communication practices in the context of the growing use of digital technology in the public and political sphere. Specifically it explores the existing and potential uses of digital tools in information flows across a range of stakeholders and publics by ENGOs while paying attention to the processes and determinants of those practices. The review spans a cross-section of Global North and South ENGOs to understand the contextual factors of digital technology use, and assess the implications for a move from conventional to informational governance. We find that ENGOs are not utilizing digital technologies in advanced ways, curbing the speed at which informational governance is replacing conventional governance.
