Environment in emerging and transition economies

2004 Output Results - EECCA

 

The OECD, through the Secretariat of the EAP Task Force, has worked in the region of Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) to reform policies and legislation, to strengthen environmental institutions and to upgrade the knowledge and skills of environmental officials and experts in EECCA countries. These efforts have been concentrated in three main areas:

  • Support for EECCA Environmental Strategy;
  • Environmental Policy Reform;
  • Water Sector Reform and Environmental Finance.

The approach taken by the EAP Task Force aims to strike a balance between inter-governmental policy dialogue based on solid analysis – the traditional approach of OECD – and supporting the achievement of practical results “on the ground”.

The major outputs generated in 2004 are presented below:
