Integrating Global Environmental Issues into Bulgaria’s Regional Development Process - Project Document (2006)
The project strategy is to promote a proactive integration of global environmental issues into the very process of regional and local development, as well as spatial planning, both of which are managed by the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works. This would be achieved by developing the capacity of MRDPW and MOEW to integrate global environmental objectives into the regional and local development policies and practices, as well as into spatial planning documents.
The project has been identified as a priority for Bulgaria by the NCSA for furthering its commitments under the UNCBD, UNFCCC, and UNCCD (henceforth referred to as “the Rio Conventions”). The NCSA has specifically identified the need to develop national capacity for mainstreaming global environmental objectives into the regional development process, through the integration of these objectives in the formulation and implementation of regional development policies and plans at the national, regional, district and municipal levels.
