EU4Environment virtual consultation with Belarus

 

The start of 2020 brought an unprecedented global challenge: the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), classed by the WHO as a global pandemic. Despite this challenging period, activities envisaged under the EU4Environment Work plans have been implemented.

On 25 June 2020, the EU4Environment Implementing Partners, jointly with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of Belarus, European Commission and EU Delegation in Belarus, held a virtual consultation.

The objectives of the meeting were to:

  • review the in-country situation in light of COVID-19; 
  • present progress with EU4Environment implementation in each EaP country;
  • discuss plans for the rest of the year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic; and
  • discuss options for organising the Regional Assembly meeting in the second half of 2020. 


Participants included National Focal Points from the the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of Belarus, National Action Coordinators, representatives of the European Commission (DG NEAR, DG ENV and DG CLIMA), EU Delegation in Belarus and the Implementing Partners (OECD, UNEP, UNECE and UNIDO).
