Public authorities play a very important role in aligning various goals and interests and supporting policy implementation. Ministries of Environment have been key players of environmental action in all six partner countries but they remain inadequately resourced and exposed to high staff turnover and frequent structural changes. EU4Environment provides on-going and ad-hoc expert support and capacity building for public environmental agencies in all EaP countries. This support is also extended to the Ministries of Economy since their role as the steering force for green economy development increases.
The work is implemented by the OECD.
