There will have a chapter dedicated to Autonomous Regions with 19 descriptive fact sheets of selected environmental data. It also includes references to the socioeconomic framework and other issues of interest, a synthesis of the main messages and a final annex with abbreviations and indicators. The report complains with the information requested of the Aarhus Convention, adopted in Spain by Law 27/2006, about the rights of access to the environmental information, public participation and access to justice in environment.
