Current issues in realization of the constitutional right of citizens to a favorable environment (environmental rights)
Abstract.This article examines the current issues in realization of the constitutional right of the Russian citizens to a favorable environment (environmental human rights). The author believes that it is necessary to develop and adopt a special Federal law "On the Access to Environmental Information”, and subsequently the Environmental Code of Russia, which codifies the concept of "environmental information", as well as guarantees a statutory right of public to access any environmental information for the purpose of justified, timely, and efficient participation in the process of decision-making with regards to environmental issues to ensure the principles of sustainable development, along with the norms that regulate different types of responsibility for refusal to provide environmental information. The result of the adoption of the Russian Federal law "On the Access to Environmental Information" should be a notable acceleration of implementation of the Aarhus Conference, an absolute expansion and strengthening of the environmental human rights, and thus, further progress towards the expansion and activation of real public participation in decision-making with regards to environmental issues.
