Improving the implementation of European environmental policy

If you are interested in how EU environmental policies and laws are put into practice across Europe and seeing where there are implementation gaps, you may wish to have a look at the European Commission’s new tool to improve implementation of EU environmental law called The Environmental Implementation Review.

While the review shows that that environmental policies in general work, it identifies the most pressing  implementation gaps across EU Member States are in waste management, nature and biodiversity, air quality, noise and water quality.

Country reports are available showing national strengths, opportunities and weaknesses. Summary national factsheets are also available for each Member State. The one for the UK is available here

The European Commission has produced this short video below.
