2007 Progress Assesment

 

Assessing Progress in Achieving the Objectives of the EECCA Environment Strategy

Background

At the Kiev "Environment for Europe" Ministerial Conference in 2003 Ministers asked the OECD EAP Task Force to assess the progress of EECCA countries in achieving the EECCA Environment Strategy’s objectives, based on information provided by EECCA countries, and in cooperation with international organisations. In 2004 the OECD EAP Task Force Secretariat prepared a Report taking stock of current environmental conditions and policies as to establish a baseline to assess progress. The report served as the main analytical input to the EECCA Environment Ministers meeting that took place in Tbilisi in October 2004.

Objectives

The objective of this project is to deliver to Environment Ministers of the pan-European region a concise, up-to-date, fact-based assessment of the progress that EECCA countries have made since the adoption of the EECCA Environment Strategy in achieving its objectives.

Following the guidance of EECCA countries and international partners, the corresponding EECCA Strategy Progress Assessment report (EECCA Report) will attempt to track policy responses and provide examples of successful ones.

A major effort will be made to actively involve relevant parties in the preparation of the report. The assessment will be undertaken in cooperation with relevant international organizations – including the EECCA RECs, the World Bank, WHO, UNEP and UNECE. It will actively involve EECCA countries, through the Ministries of Environment and environmental civil society organizations, in the design, data collection, analysis and review. And it will be closely coordinated with the EEA Belgrade Assessment report.
