The UK is a Party to the Aarhus Convention, a UNECE treaty which provides for access to information, public participation in decision making and access to justice in environmental matters. Parties to the Convention are requested to submit a National Implementation Report every three years. This report covers legislative, regulatory and other measures through which the UK implements the Aarhus Convention, and provides examples of the practical steps being taken to implement the provisions of the Convention in the UK. This consultation seeks feedback on this draft report, and also further examples to supplement those already included.
This consultation by Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs runs from 5 October until 27 November 2020.
