espooThis guide provides citizens and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with clear and simple advice on how better exercise their rights to know and participate in environ­ment-related decisions. This guide focuses on one important issue: what opportunities the public has to express its concerns about a decision which affects their environment but is taken in a foreign country. In Europe these opportunities are provided by the Espoo Convention and are available to citizens of 43 states. Available in Russian and Ukrainian.


ppThis publication serves as a Guide for Environmental Citizens Organizations to know more about the Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment which was signed in Kyiv, Ukraine, in May 2003. The Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment will commit the states of Europe and Eurasia to including environmental considerations in the most important decisions made by governments and public authorities. The Protocol will achieve this by guaranteeing a uniform minimum set of standards and procedures for the process of strategic environmental assessment.
