Benefit Assessment Manual for Policy Makers

Benefit Assessment Manual for Policy Makers

Assessment of Social and Economic Benefits of Enhanced Environmental Protection in the ENPI Countries

A transition to a green economy would create more social well-being and reduce environmental risks. This is the result of an analysis for European Neighbourhood Policy countries and the Russian Federation on social and economic benefits of enhanced environmental protection. A Benefit Assessment Manual, which was developed and road-tested in this project and support policy makers who wish to conduct their own tailored benefit assessments, is available for download.

The overall objective of the project "Social and Economic Benefits of Enhanced Environment Protection in ENP Countries" is to increase the importance of the environment on the agenda of these governments and improve their awareness on social and economic benefits of environmental improvements by analysing these benefits for each specific country.

The project's activities are undertaken in all ENP countries and the Russian Federation:

  • Eastern countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine and the Russian Federation.
  • Southern countries: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Syria and Tunisia.

All project reports for all of the ENP countries, as well as the Benefit Assessment Manual [pdf, 1.8 MB, English], can be downloaded from the project website.
