Environmental Performance Reviews: Slovenia

First Review

image of Environmental Performance Reviews: Slovenia

Slovenia has long taken a keen interest in its environment. However gradual environmental deterioration in the eighties posed serious threats to human health and to development. This review presents an in-depth study of Slovenia’s environmental position today. It looks into the framework for environmental policy and management, management of pollution and of natural resources and the economic and sectoral integration. It compliments its findings with a set of draft recommendations which can be used to alleviate environmental problems.




The ECE Committee on Environmental Policy launched the Environmental Performance Review of Slovenia in January 1996. Two months later, the preparatory mission for the project was organized, and a team of both national and ECE experts was formed to carry out the review. The Governments of Albania, Hungary, Israel, Norway, Poland, Slovakia and Switzerland made national experts available for the task. The Bilthoven Division of the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health contributed its expertise and resources for the preparation of the review of environmental health issues. The travel expenses of experts from countries in transition and from the ECE secretariat were covered by extra-budgetary funds, which had been provided by Austria, Finland, France, Netherlands and Norway. The successful conclusion of the project would not have been possible without the generous support from all these sources.
