Environmental Performance Reviews: Bulgaria

Second Review

The focus of the ECE review programme is to help countries in transition to move from a centrally planned to a market economy in order to improve their individual and collective performance in environmental management. The ultimate goal of this review programme is the promotion of sustainable development and the convergence of environmental conditions and policies throughout Europe. This report on Bulgaria focuses on two broad areas: the evolution of environmental policy and management from 1996 to 1999; and the current priorities of environmental policy and management.
