The annual EAP Task Force meeting held in Oslo on 24-25 September 2012, at the invitation of the Norwegian Ministry of Environment, took place just a few months after the Rio+20 Summit. It presented an opportunity to discuss how green growth strategies could be operationalised by countries of Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA), particularly within the framework of the EAP Task Force work programme. More specifically, participants were invited to consider the ways of strengthening market-based approaches for environmental protection, in particular for water management, in EECCA, as well as challenges related to innovation and technology cooperation in support to green growth. Government officials from EECCA and OECD countries and a wide range of non-governmental and international partners were invited to attend the meeting.
The main outcomes of the meeting are reflected in its Summary Record.
