The project has a value of € 1,970,200 and is managed by the Delegation of the EC to the Republic of Serbia.

EPTISA in cooperation with Project Management Ltd. has been awarded an important EU-IPA funded project “TA for Development of an Environmental Approximation Strategy (EAS)” with the overall aim to support the Government of Serbia to achieve the goals of accession to the European Union and improve the environment by assisting in the approximation of Serbian legislation with EU environmental acquis.

The main project beneficiary is the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP). In addition, other ministries and state bodies with competency in areas of the environmental acquis will be actively involved and will benefit from the project, as well as the Parliament, autonomous provinces, cities, local self-governments, NGOs, interested industry, commercial and professional organisations, and the public.

During the next 24 months, EPTISA will support MESP in designing and developing an EAS, including calculating the costs & benefits of approximation to the environmental acquis, as well as support the Serbian Government in the implementation of EAS in certain priority sectors, which will include transposition and implementation of legal acts, proposals for multi-annual investment and compliance programmes, and the design of new financial instruments.

The Consultant will also work on strengthening the institutional framework, procedures, public participation and administrative capacity for the approximation of the EU environmental acquis and in fulfilling its obligations under the Stabilisation and Association Agreement and National Programme for Integration in the EU.
