This guidance document aims to assist Parties in implementing the Protocol on PRTRs. It also serves to promote understanding of this novel regulatory instrument and especially of the public’s role in promoting better environmental performance through the study and use of PRTRs. PRTRs can help countries meet the objectives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change treaty since they allow to monitor the release of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and of other toxic substances into the air, water and soil that seriously impact the environment and human health.
