The Ministry of Environmental Protection released a draft of public rights on Tuesday to encourage participation in projects and policies involving the environment.

The draft stipulates that the public can participate in making and revising policies and regulations, drawing up environmental impact statements, investigating cases of serious pollution that violate their environmental rights, supervising the emissions of major companies in polluting industries and other voluntary services.

Environmental authorities should make necessary information public through the Web and other channels, and people can apply for more information if they think it's insufficient, according to the full text of the draft published in China Environment News, the ministry's newspaper.
