Twenty-four representatives of various Civil Society Organizations (CSO) agreed that Saint Lucia should sign on to the Latin American and Caribbean Declaration on the Application of Principle 10 (LAC P10).

The objectives of the meeting were to raise the level of awareness about Access Rights and the LAC P10 process; ascertain the views of CSOs on whether it would be beneficial for Saint Lucia to sign on to LAC P10; and create a strategy to strengthen our collective advocacy on the issue. The meeting was held under the theme “You have the right to information, participation and justice regarding environmental matters”. Read full press release….
