Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood (EaP GREEN) programme is being implemented by UNECE in cooperation with OECD, UNEP, and UNIDO to assist the European Union’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries in their transition to green economies. The programme is financed by the European Commission, the four implementing organisations and other donors.
The programme’s overall objective is for the EaP countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) to move towards a green economy by decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation and resource depletion. The programme aims to promote the use of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as essential planning tools for an environmentally sustainable economic development.
In the framework of the EaP GREEN, UNECE will support the participating countries in developing and applying SEA legislation and systems in accordance with the provisions of the Protocol on SEA (and the EU SEA Directive). As appropriate, assistance will also be provided for improving the current practices and legal and institutional frameworks on EIA in compliance with the Espoo Convention (and with the EU EIA Directive).
