Aarhus Convention

CEP supporting the Study on EU implementation of the Aarhus Convention

CEP supporting the Study on EU implementation of the Aarhus Convention in the area of access to justice in environmental matters under Framework Contract ENV E.4/FRA/2016/0003.

CEP is part of a team led by Milieu Ltd who are carrying out this project. Based on an evaluation of the performance of the current system of EU implementation of the Aarhus Convention in the area of access to justice in environmental matters, and a detailed assessment of possible options, the study should enable the Commission to decide how best to go forward in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Aarhus Convention by the EU.  The study is part of the Roadmap published by the Commission in May 2018 on the implementation of the Aarhus Convention in the area of access to justice in environmental matters.  

Dr Clare Twigger-Ross from CEP is providing expert input into the assessment of social impacts of the current situation as well as future options. The project started in October 2018 and is due to finish in May 2019.
