SIPU proudly announces renewed collaboration with Naturvårdsverket (Swedish Environmental Protection Agency) as administrative coordinators of their ITP-programme; Environmental Governance and Management with EU-focus.
- This will be the second time we collaborate with Naturvårdsverket for this programme; and we are
really looking forward to the assignment, says Cecilia
Norgren Project Manager at SIPU.
The programme is sponsored by Sida and
targets countries in Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans; either
in the process of EU- approximation aiming to become member states,
or trying to get a better understanding of the environmental policy
and legislation of the EU. Focus of the programme is enhancing the
EU-approximation or harmonization process in the target
organizations through improved environmental governance and
The first part of the programme will take place in Brussels in
June 2012 and the second part in Stockholm, September 2012.
SIPU will mainly manage the practical details of the programme
and assist the programme management where needed.
