Abstract

The objectives of this study are to study the system of transboundary environmental impact assessment (TEIA) under the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context 1991 (Espoo Convention) and to study the practical application of TEIA under the Espoo Convention. This study is qualitative research. This study uses the method of context analysis and logical descriptive analysis of secondary data gathered from various sources i.e. textbooks, academic articles, researches, important documents, arbitration awards and court judgements.


The Espoo Convention is an agreement specifying procedures for the conduct of TEIA between parties in broad terms. In the practical application of Espoo Convention, parties are required to agree in further details especially on matters not specified in the Espoo Convention but necessary for the successful conduct of TEIA. The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe has issued a Guidance on the Practical Application of the Espoo Convention to be used as a guideline for the conclusion of bilateral or multilateral agreement for the practical application of Espoo Convention. This study has also investigated one of implementation agreements between parties of the Espoo Convention that is the Agreement between the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Government of the Republic of Poland on the Implementation of the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context of 25 February 1991 for the better understanding about the conclusion of a bilateral agreement for the implementation of Espoo Convention.
