Aarhus Convention implementation report

This online reporting format has been developed by the secretariat as a tool to facilitate the submission of finalized national implementation reports in a standard format. It is based on the questionnaire attached to decision I/8 on reporting requirements under the Aarhus Convention. Each national focal point will be able to use this tool in order to submit the report to the secretariat. It will also be possible for the officials responsible to work on successive drafts online and to save the work after each session. The text only becomes public after it has been submitted to the secretariat as the final version.

Once submitted, national implementation reports will be posted on the web site, together with the national language version where applicable.

 

First time users: All national focal points that would like to submit their reports throught the online format are invited to contact the secretariat at public.participation@unece.org. You will receive your login and password which you can use to access this part of the Convention’s web site and enter responses to questions in the reporting format. Please contact us if you have any questions or if you encountered any problems while using this tool.
