About the project

 

The project aims to extend capacity of the Republic of Belarus in strategic planning and governance in the field of environment and environmental information. In particular, the project will suggest approximation of national biodiversity conservation legal framework, water management regulations, MSW management regulations and ecological certification of products to those of the EU to cover the gaps in the current legislation. The project will contribute additional efforts to raising awareness by general public about environmental concerns as well as public participation in environmentally-related decision-making processes through actual involvement of general public in playing a stakeholder role during implementation of several pilot projects.  A local Aarhus center will be established in one of the oblasts selected for pilot projects implementation.
