Background

The project is part of the Eye on Access for All Special Initiative www.eoesummit.org/special-initiative-access-for-all which promotes the implementation of Principle 10 of the 1992 Rio Declaration. Through various projects, the initiative aims to:

  • increase awareness among national governments and civil society of Principle 10 and the benefits of its implementation, including sharing good practices and experience from other regions or countries;
  • develop legal frameworks at national and regional levels that promote access to public information, engagement rights and better implementation practices in the spirit of Principle 10;
  • increase the amount of information and data available for decision making and policy development, and encourage public participation in decision making; and
  • increase the visibility and influence of environmental information in societal decision-making processes and national planning.
