WELCOME TO THE AARHUS CLEARINGHOUSE
Welcome to the Aarhus Clearinghouse for Environmental Democracy.
This web portal showcases information on laws and practices relevant to the public's right to:
• access environmental information
• participate in environmental decision-making, and
• achieve justice on environmental matters

The Aarhus Clearinghouse provides information relevant to the implementation of Principle 10 of the 1992 Rio Declaration on Environment and Development at the global and regional level, as well as national levels all over the world. It also facilitates the collection, dissemination and exchange of information related to the UNECE Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters (in short: Aarhus Convention).
