The Role of Information in the Age of Climate Change

To celebrate 10th anniversary of the Aarhus Convention, Aarhus University held a conference in close cooperation with the French Presidency of the European Union Council, the Danish Ministry of Environment, the Dan¬ish Ministry of Climate and Energy, the European Environment Agency, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), the Danish Society for Nature Conservation, Central Denmark Region and the Municipality of Aarhus. The conference addresses synergies across the first two ‘pillars’ of the Aarhus Convention - access to information and public participation - and examine the broader implications of these interactions for an advanced implementation of Article 6 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the “New Delhi Work Programme”. The conference focuses in particular on the role of public access to environmental science-based information and public participation in decision-making on issues related to climate policy as provided under regulatory instruments facilitated by the Aarhus Convention that are crucial to local, regional and global success of the UNFCCC.(Original source: http://www.klima.au.dk/index.php?id=52)
