The Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government invites comments from interested parties on the implementation in Ireland of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters (known as the Aarhus Convention) in Ireland.
The purpose of this consultation is to provide the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the Aarhus Convention Secretariat and the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee with the widest possible range of views and opinions on issues related to the implementation and practical arrangements for the promotion of the Aarhus Convention in Ireland.
The outcome of this consultation will feed into the work being carried out by the Aarhus Convention MOP and into the effective implementation of the Aarhus Convention by the Parties to the Convention, as well as providing useful material across the wider policy development agenda.
