Measuring progress in nature conservation against the CBD and PEBLDS

In an Open letter to the Croatian Parliament Green action (GA) has asked for improvements of the law proposal. We stated that for Croatia it is not necessary to produce or grow GMOs. We asked for public participation in decision-making process, more transparency and better access to information. We also asked for law to be more precise on means of involving public in decision-making process. Till today 22 citizen associations and NGOs have supported this open letter.

On this we also had actions in front of the Parliament. On "Silent actions" about 10 of our activists had tape across their mouths that symbolized public without right to vote or to be informed on introduction of GMOs. Press release and relevant materials were given to Parliamentarians during action.

The CBD, Cartagena Protocol, Directive 90/219/EEC on the contained use of genetically modified micro-organisms, Council Directive 98/81/EEC (Amending Directive 90/219/EEC) and Directive 2001/18/EC (Directive on deliberate release into the environment of genetically modified organisms and repealing Council Directive 90/220/EEC) were taken in consideration during preparations of GMO law proposal.
