13 July 2011 at 4:56 pm

If you need access to records on environmental management and governance held by authorities and private companies and plan to use the Promotion of Access to Information Act, 2000 (PAIA) to submit a request for access to information, the CER has just published a first version Quick Guide on Using PAIA to Access Information on Environmental Governance, downloadable here. This Guide, which will be updated on an ongoing basis, contains practical information on improving your prospects of getting your application processed by departments like the DMR, DEA and DWA.

Comments on the Quick Guide are welcome, including from affected government departments.
