Experts from denkstatt Bulgaria participated in the closing conference related to activities and analyses initiated by the European Commission on the application of market-based instruments in the field of the environment in EU countries.
Between December 2015 and October 2017 a consortium, with leading partner the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP), advised the European Commission on this increasingly discussed topic in European policy. Among the key activities were review and analysis of the economic instruments used, as well as workshops with stakeholders in five main areas: air quality, circular economy and waste management, water management, biodiversity and land use, water quality and waste in the marine environment.
denkstatt Bulgaria has reviewed the existing environmental market instruments in Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Among our commitments was also an analysis of specific cases in the areas of air quality, water management and waste management and the circular economy.
The closing event took place on the 5th of October 2017 in Brussels and involved civil society organizations and politicians from across the EU who discussed how civil society can support and encourage the use of economic instruments to achieve environmental goals.
