Project Description:

The overall objectives of the project were to strengthen the institutional capacity of the MESD (Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development) to achieve a sound overall programming and monitoring of the EU co-financed projects in Romania and the efficient and effective use of the funds made available.

Through on-the-job co-operation, elaboration of methodologies and staff training, this project reinforced the capacity of MESD’s ISPA staff to:

  • Prepare sound project plans;
  • Guide municipalities on the preparation of project proposals;
  • Appraise and prioritise project proposals coming forward;
  • Evaluate project applications and tender documents,
  • Manage efficiently the process of evaluation, and
  • Monitor the implementation of approved ISPA projects.
