This multi-country framework project had two principal objectives:
1. The preparation of a pipeline of environmental investment projects for potential co-financing by Phare and International Financing Institutions (European Bank for Reconstruction & Development, European Investment Bank, World Bank, etc). This involved assisting Phare countries in identifying and developing suitable investment projects, preparation of tender dossiers / specifications and financing plans for a wide range of environmental investment projects.
2. Strengthening the role, policies, operating systems / procedures and performance of national environmental funds (“Ecofunds”) in Central and Eastern European countries (in co-operation with the EAP Task Force, Paris). Ecofunds are a major source of finance for investments in environmental infrastructure and industrial pollution abatement in many CEE countries.
Objective 2 involved the planning and implementation of a rolling programme of training activities and technical assistance assignments to review and evaluate the existing policies, organisation, systems, procedures and financing operations of CEE Ecofunds, and the making of recommendations and proposals for institutional strengthening and improving their Project Cycle Management procedures to enable them to play a greater role in mobilising the financial resources required to achieve compliance with EU environmental policies and legislation.
