UNEP, one of the EU4Environment implementing partners, and the UN agency UNITAR, provided a tailored training for civil servants in key Ministries relevant to the Green Economy transition in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries.
The training aimed to build civil servants’ capacities in reviewing, analysing and integrating Sustainable consumption and production/Green Economy approaches into existing and planned policies/strategies, both at national and sectoral levels. The training contributed to delivery of the EU4Environment activity on “Survey and large-scale training of public sector employees”, and enabled civil servants to deliver on another activity: “Fitness tests/analyses of Green Economy policy documents and policy proposals”.
The course was presented as an online webinar over 8 weeks which started in mid-February. It covered diverse subjects and policy mechanisms, based on the identified needs of staff in line ministries and public administration. 56 participants from key institutional bodies in the EaP countries enrolled for this course.
