Strengthening Interministerial Coordination Mechanisms
Inter-Ministerial Coordinating Mechanisms will be set up to ensure adequate coordination and implementation of policies, legislation and projects for nutrient reduction and pollution control.
Based on the detail analysis of inter-ministerial coordinating mechanisms and structures for water management and pollution control in Danube countries proposals for improving of existing and for setting up of new inter-ministerial co-coordinating mechanisms was made.
For Moldova, Ukraine, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia & Montenegro and to a lesser extend for Croatia and Romania the results of the analysis has revealed, in certain cases, unclear competencies between Governmental structures, inadequate or missing mechanisms for coordination, insufficient financial and human capacities for the development and implementation of policies, strategies and measures and an incomplete legal frame for water management and pollution control.
For these countries it is proposed in Phase 2 to undertake Training and Capacity Building activities and to organize intensive workshops in order to analyze the legal and administrative mechanisms of Government structures (mandate and responsibilities of Ministries and public Institutions) and to design, together with Government representatives and other stakeholders, adequate mechanisms for inter-ministerial coordination.
