This work programme item responds to requests for support to redesign enforcement tools and the way they are applied in order to increase their effectiveness and efficiency.
This project establishes practical ways to strengthen Environmental Enforcement Agencies (ENFAs), as well as creates international peer pressure to catalyse the reform of compliance assurance systems.
Empirical data and analysis in EECCA and other regions have shown that inadequate enforcement and compliance can result is significant costs. Most importantly they can impose the costs of addressing negative impacts of pollution on human health.
Work under this theme support the implementation of the "Guiding Principles for Environmental Enforcement Authorities in Transition Economies of EECCA".
This activity aims to assist EECCA countries in setting realistic, achievable environmental standards (air and water quality standards and waste management performance standards), consistent with EU requirements.
This work assists enforcement agencies in evaluating and better managing their performance as well as demonstrating the results of government enforcement activities by developing indicators of compliance programmes and their impacts.
The traditional command-and-control approach in environmental protection has had only limited results in the EECA region.
The objective of this work is to assist environmental regulatory agencies in EECCA to streamline and integrate environmental permitting procedures and requirements.
