On Friday, June 25, the USAID Government Accountability Initiative and the Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection organized a Forum on Free Access to Information – “Environmental Information – how difficult is it to access?” to highlight the importance of citizens’ right to free access to government-held information regarding environmental protection governance in Serbia. The dialogue was attended by representatives of state bodies, civil society organizations, academia, and media, and focused on current practices and challenges in the application of this right in Serbia, and the role of civil society organizations and journalists in the exercise of this right. Participants also discussed opportunities to improve and protect the right of access to environmental information.
