Members of Working Group 3 “Environment, Climate Change and Energy Security” of the Ukrainian National Platform of the Civil Society Forum of the Eastern Partnership (UNP EaP CSF) and Working Group 5 “Energy, Transport, Environment and Climate Change” of the Ukrainian side of the Ukraine-EU Civil Society Platform (US CSP) supported the statement of representatives of the environmental protection movement regarding the inadmissibility of the narrowing of environmental rights.
We are talking about draft law No. 8410 “On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine “On Environmental Impact Assessment”. In addition to several quite appropriate innovations, the draft law significantly narrows the possibilities of public participation in the ATS procedure, and this causes serious concern among representatives of civil society.
Representatives of the environmental movement appeal to the Government, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine, and the People’s Deputies of the VRU Committee on Environmental Policy and Nature Management with a demand to review proposals that contradict European integration, and to ensure a proper permanent and progressive expansion of the public’s opportunities to participate in the process of adopting management policies. decisions on issues related to the environment.
We are thank to Environment People Law (EPL)/Ecology – Law – Human (EPL) (members of WG3 UNP) for the analysis of the draft law and the preparation of the draft statement.
