Ukraine and Romania to strengthen environmental cooperation

Ukraine and Romania are preparing a bilateral agreement on the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context (ESPO Convention) implementation.

It will strengthen environmental cooperation in the Danube region.

The agreement was approved by the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources of Ukraine, Ruslan Strilets, and the Minister of Environment, Water and Forests of Romania, Barna Tanchos, during an online meeting on June 27. It was reported on the website of the Ministry of Environment.

According to the document, the procedure of environmental impact assessment of potentially dangerous projects should be carried out not only within the state but also in neighboring countries potentially affected by these objects.

In addition, Ukraine and the EU signed an agreement on June 24 to join the international environmental program LIFE. Its budget for 2021-2027 for environmental projects is EUR 5.43 billion. The Ministry of Environment already has more than 15 specific proposals to be formalized in the relevant projects for the LIFE program.
