It assesses the implementation of the recommendations contained in the second review. This second EPR also covers 10 issues of importance to the country related to policymaking, planning and implementation, the financing of environmental policies and projects and the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors, in particular agriculture, sustainable management and protection of water resources, waste management, climate change, and biodiversity and protected areas. The publication is aimed at officials and experts working for public authorities responsible for environmental policy, representatives of civil society, the business community, academia and the media.



Implementation of the recommendations in the second review

Following the 2005 EU-Moldova Action Plan, the Government should acknowledge environmental protection of natural resources as a national priority. For this purpose, it should strengthen the capacity of the environmental authorities and their bodies at national, territorial and local level, so that they are able to perform their functions and adequately respond to environmental priorities expressed in the policy papers. To facilitate the convergence to the EU environmental legislation, a new legal EU harmonization department should be established.
