Funded by UNDP, the main goal of this project was to mitigate specific EU accession risks related to the industrial and mining environmental hotspots that caused obstacles in the target countries' harmonization with the related EU environmental acquis. The project was specifically focused on:
- Mapping the existing national environmental legislation concerning industrial and mining activities and its level of alignment with the relevant EU environmental acquis
- Mapping industrial and mining environmental hotspots in breach of the EU environmental regulations and provide recommendations for their future improvements and remediation
- Transfer of the Czech experience in contaminated sites management and legislation.
