Rationale
  • Despite steps taken in the EaP region to strengthen environment protection over the past years, many concerns persist or even intensify, such as climate change or biodiversity loss.
  • As pollution does not respect borders there is a strong rationale to tackle concerns multilaterally. A mix of international, regional and domestic action is needed.
  • The underlying conditions required to protect the environment – the principles of good environment governance - need to be established and strengthened, to implement policies and legislation, and to promote sustainable growth.
  • Principles of good environmental governance are defined in Multilateral Environment Agreements and in EU legislation.

Rationale
  • Integrated border management (IBM) structures aligned to EU standards are necessary to facilitate mobility of persons.
  • By effectively tackling customs fraud, trafficking and illegal migration progress can be made in key policy areas such as trade, customs and visas.
  • Assistance for demarcation of internationally recognised borders could also be provided in the frame of this initiative’.

Objectives
  • Support the extension of Interconnections. This requires substantial investments from IFIs, MS donors, private sector.
  • Improve Energy Efficiency and expand use of Renewable Resources. EaP partners need support in pursuing studies and activities to improve or establish appropriate regulatory and policy frameworks and adopt best practices in line with EU standards. Support to build up Institutional capacity will be stepped up where needed. Pilot projects in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy can be financed.

Is the EU giving up on its “one size fits all” approach to neighbourhood policy by dividing it into “ENP South” and “ENP East?” Six months after the adoption of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) the European Commission has presented plans for a new Eastern Partnership (EaP) as a specific “Eastern dimension within the ENP.”

Four years have passed since the official inauguration of the European Neighbourhood Policy, which was tailored to provide assistance to European Union’s near abroad during the period of transition and reforms, to promote key European values and to ensure security, stability and prosperity in a wider Europe. The European Neighbourhood Policy has not met everybody’s expectations. Instead, we have a bargaining game of promoting various member states’regional interests.
