All-Russian conference on implementation and protection of environmental rights held in Samara

On October 19 the all-Russian conference on the implementation and protection of environmental rights of citizens was held in Samara within the framework of the Year of Ecology.

The conference was organized by the Samara Regional Branch of the All-Russian Public Organization "Association of Lawyers of Russia", the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Samara Region and "Samara National Research University of academic S. P. Korolev".

Residents of the Samara Region are concerned about the state of the environment. According to the results of a sociological study conducted by the Commissioner in conjunction with the "Samara National Research University", almost 30% of respondents believe that rights to a favorable environment are not respected on the territory of the Samara Region. In 2017, the number of citizens' appeals to the Commissioner on the implementation of the right to a favorable environment has doubled.

Based on the results of the work, suggestions were made and after examination and processing, would be included in the final resolution of the conference. In particular, proposals were made to introduce amendments to the federal legislation regarding the creation of a specialized environmental police, which would have a full range of verification and control powers; on the modernization of the monitoring system for atmospheric air pollution, increasing the responsibility of owners of vehicles for their inadequate technical condition and other initiatives.
