Description of the project
The relevance of environmental themes in the process of European integration of Ukraine can be proved by its commitments under the Association Agreement. The essence of these commitments is that Ukraine should approximate its environmental protection and climate policies to 29 EU directives and regulations. This is why it is important for citizens to see successful practices of applying the EU environmental legislation and understand the significance of the impact of these regulations both in Ukraine and the EU.
The project had the following objectives:
- Conduct an awareness campaign;
- Distribute monthly overviews of main developments in the area of EU environmental and climate policies and law; and
- Produce eight thematic booklets on successful practices of applying the Association Agreement’s provisions on the environment and climate change.
To show the effectiveness and efficiency of the EU legal regulation of environmental protection, a Forum of Successful Practices was held based on real experiences in implementing the Association Agreement.
As a result, the understanding of the need to involve citizens in the AA implementation process in the area of environment and climate has improved, what will have a positive impact on the support of national reforms.
Monthly information-analytical overviews of the EU environmental and climate policies and law (in Ukrainian):
