Joint High-level Segment under the Meetings of the Parties to the Aarhus Convention and its Protocol on PRTRs

2 July 2014

Maastricht, Netherlands

Back to MOP5-MOPP2 page

The High-level Segment targeted high-level officials, including ministers, vice ministers, state secretaries, other heads of delegations and special guests, and was culminated in the adoption of the Maastricht Declaration (ECE/MP.PP/2014/27 Add.1-ECE/MP.PRTR/2014/2 Add.1).


The High-level Segment was chaired by Ms. Wilma Mansveld, Minister for the Environment of the Netherlands, while the thematic session had the format of a panel discussion involving ministers, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders with strong expertise in the themes discussed, followed by a general debate. The discussion was facilitated by a Mr Hans Alders, former Minister for the Environment of the Netherlands.


The substantive focus of the High-level Segment was based on the themes of the Maastricht Declaration. The session, among others, provided input to the work on the future sustainable development agenda following the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012 (Rio+20 Conference) and setting and implementing relevant Millennium Development or future Sustainable Development Goals.
