Mr. Bo LIBERT,
UNECE technical assistance in the area of environment, funded from the Regular Programme of Technical Cooperation (RPTC), is focused on facilitation of subregional and cross-sectoral environmental cooperation and aims at improving the capacity of countries with economies in transition to implement the UNECE environmental conventions. Another important objective is to enhance synergies between these conventions in the field.
Technical cooperation activities in this field, carried out by the Regional Adviser on Environment in cooperation with the Environment, Housing and Land Management Division, are linked to UNECE's normative work, limited to those particular areas where the UNECE has recognized expertise, and aim at ensuring effective and efficient responses to the particular demands of UNECE member States. The work is focused mainly on the countries with economies in transition of Southeast and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. Most of the activities are developed and implemented in cooperation with other international organizations.
Brief information about the objective, expected accomplishments, indicators of achievement and summary of outputs, related to ECE Regional Advisory Services on Environment in 2014-2015 can be accessed here.
