Guidance on the Practical Application of the Espoo Convention
As noted throughout this guide there are many issues that can be agreed upon in advance by Parties which expect to have transboundary assessments on a regular basis. The Convention provides a legal basis for agreements (App 2.2 and 8). Annex VI to the Convention contains elements for such agreements. These agreements are not a precondition for the application or ratification of the Convention but should be seen as a way of achieving effective application.
