Regional Environmental Profiles

The Regional Environmental Profiles (REP) are set in a socio-economic developmental perspective so that the findings can be used to assist in programming cooperation projects. The Programming phase is crucial for environment and climate change integration because key decisions concerning the overall co-operation process that are made at this stage can be more difficult to adjust in later phases.

The REPs include the analysis of the country's environmental and climate change situation, current environment and climate change policies and strategies, institutional capacities and environmental/climate change co-operation experience with clear recommendations for future EU cooperation, policy dialogue and for the integration of the environment and climate change in the Multiannual Indicative Programme and its implementation.
