STELLA contributes to enhancing environmental cooperation between the EU and the six Eastern Partnership countries

The EC has awarded STELLA a new contract for evaluating the economic and environmental benefits and implications deriving from the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries’ convergence with the EU environmental acquis.  The six EaP countries (shown in orange on the map) are: Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine.

This is an unusual study: typically, benefit studies estimate the benefits for a country or a region of improving the environment situation in that same country or region.  In this study, the goal is to estimate the benefits that the EU would derive from environmental improvements in the six neighbouring EaP countries.

The potential environmental and health benefits - as well as the potential social and economic benefits for the EU - will be quantified using a set of indicators in the following areas:

  • Water resources;
  • Marine areas;
  • Air quality;
  • Biodiversity resources;
  • Waste management; and
  • Economy and enterprises.

The kick-off meeting took place on the 2nd of September 2014 and we anticipate presenting the results in mid-March 2015 in a mini-seminar targeted at EU employees who deal with the Eastern Neighbourhood (from the European Commission and European External Action Service), interested representatives of diplomatic corps and other stakeholders.
