Regional ENPI — East project „Waste Governance”

EU funded “Waste Gov­er­nance” project imple­mented in frames of the Euro­pean Neigh­bor­hood and Part­ner­ship Region (ENPI East ) aims to improve co-​operation within, and between, coun­tries for reduc­ing the risks aris­ing from inap­pro­pri­ate waste man­age­ment through­out the region. Coun­tries involved in the project are Azer­baid­jan, Arme­nia, Belarus, Geor­gia, Moldova, Rus­sia and Ukraine.

The Project aims at assist­ing through tech­ni­cal co-​operation and sup­port the part­ner coun­tries in their efforts to reduce the risks aris­ing from inap­pro­pri­ate man­age­ment of wastes, that thereby cre­ate envi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion haz­ards to the com­mu­nity and to nat­ural resources, through co-​operation with, and amongst, part­ner states in the region.

The project’s spe­cific objec­tive is to improve the man­age­ment of waste by pro­mot­ing higher stan­dards at waste facil­i­ties, more effec­tive waste pre­ven­tion ini­tia­tives, increased capac­i­ties for waste col­lec­tion and sort­ing as well as increas­ing re-​use, recov­ery, and safe dis­posal of waste.

Through this project the Repub­lic of Moldova in part­ner­ship with Con­sor­tium lead by Eptisa (a lead­ing Spainish inter­na­tional con­sul­tancy) entrusted by the Com­mis­sion to imple­ment the project along with the other mem­bers of the Con­sor­tium Project Man­age­ment Group (Ire­land), Ficht­ner (Ger­many), Plan­Miljo (Den­mark), Regional Envi­ron­men­tal Cen­tre for the Cau­ca­sus (Geor­gia), and Wasteaware (United King­dom) shall sup­port the Gov­ern­ment of the Repub­lic of Moldova to improve the waste man­age­ment and namely:

  • Com­pleted pilot region inven­to­ries of exist­ing illegal/​non-​compliant dis­posal sites;
  • An adopted waste clas­si­fi­ca­tion approach that accords with inter­na­tional and EU standards;
  • Com­pleted, 15-​year, waste man­age­ment strate­gies for each of the iden­ti­fied pilot cities; and
  • Fea­si­bil­ity study in estab­lish­ing a “DABLAS type” plat­form for encour­ag­ing strate­gic waste man­age­ment investments.
