The transition to greener economies requires aligning stakeholder interactions and decision-making mechanisms with environmental imperatives. Building on the achievements of the previous EU-funded EaP GREEN project, EU4Environment provides large-scale trainings for public sector employees on environmental policy design and analysis while also supporting result-oriented, inter-ministerial dialogue on green economy issues.
Building on previous campaigns of the EU OPEN programme, and in cooperation with the EaP Civil Society Forum, EU4Environment engages governments, academia and civil society to develop education programmes and public awareness campaigns that help to rationalize and mainstream sustainable lifestyles.
EU4Environment provides assistance for reforming, introducing new policy instruments as well as legal changes to support the transformation of sectors deemed a priority for the green economy transition in partner countries. The programme also helps in identifying links to macro-economic reforms and applying relevant experiences from the European Union.
This work is implemented by UNEP.
