National Priority Setting Workshop in Mali Recommends to Make Public Participation in Decision Making a Reality at All Levels
The Malian Ministry of Environment and Sanitation organized a workshop in Bamako, Mali, 21-22 December 2010 to discuss national priorities regarding access to information, public participation and access to justice in environmental matters. These issues are covered by the Principle 10 of the Rio Declaration, which was adopted at the Rio Summit in 1992 by Heads of States and Governments. The workshop was part of a collaborative project with UNITAR. In his opening remarks, Mr. Oumar Ouattara, technical advisor to the Minister of Environment and Sanitation highlighted that closing the gap between the reality on paper and real life practice is most urgent.
