Creating bi-and multi-lateral agreements and arrangements

Guidance on the Practical Application of the Espoo Convention

Creating bi- and multilateral agreements and arrangements
(Art. 2.2 and 8 and App. VI)
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.
