A webinar on “Designing and implementing green public investment programmes: Experience from Poland and the Czech Republic” with the objective to facilitate knowledge transfer and experience-sharing between the EU and the Eastern Partnership countries with regard to greening public expenditure.
The EU-funded “EU4Environment” Programme, launched in 2019, helps six Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine, preserve their natural capital and increase people’s environmental well-being. It supports environment-related actions, demonstrating and unlocking opportunities for greener growth, and setting mechanisms to better manage environmental risks and impacts.
The regional component of the EU Water Initiative (EUWI) focuses on Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA). It supports work of the European Neighbourhood Policy and of the EU-Central Asia Platform for Environment and Water Cooperation, and helps to promote the progressive approximation to EU water policies, particularly to the EU Water Framework Directive, in EECCA countries.
This seminar facilitated the sharing of experiences and good practices from OECD and the Eastern Partnership economies in adopting risk-based approaches to environmental compliance assurance, exploring commonly encountered challenges and methods to support voluntary compliance.
EU4Environment organised the Regional workshop on Implementing a Best Available Techniques (BAT) approach to environmental regulation in the Eastern Partnership countries. It provided updates on BAT-related activities, discussed challenges, and ways in which peer countries and the EU4Environment project can continue to support implementation.
