1 Cohesion Fund ISPA to the Cohesion Fund: creating a project pipeline Brendan Smyth Polish unit

2 Cohesion Fund zTransition: ISPA is a genetically modified Cohesion Fund zThe volume problem: absorbing a huge increase in available CF budget zSolution: partial absorption of future Cohesion Fund budget by ISPA projects and creating a new project pipeline

3 Polish example zModeling the Polish environment sector zFollowing the Copenhagen summit: z33% of Polish allocation in CF zassume 50/50 division between transport and environment

4 Polish example million ISPA 2003187 CF 2004707 3.8 X 2002 2005582 2006777 4.2 X 2002 –

5 Polish example zAbsorbing the future CF: uAnnual commitments to approved projects up to 2006 uplus: annual commitments up to 2006 to ISPA projects approved in 2003 uCF projects approved in 2004-2006 z33 projects already approved, 19 under preparation for 2003, 55 in table to 2006

11 Conclusions l1.27 million out of 2.07 billion, 62% of the budget, can be accounted for by commitments to known projects l large volume of investment (c. 1 billion) yet to be identified and prepared: additional investment in regional program not taken into account llargest projects in cities over 100,000 inhabitants are already included in the forecast lmore solid waste and air projects will not easily solve the absorption problem: smaller average cost than water projects

13 Conclusions zFront load commitments to solve problem in 2004 zDebalance in favour of transport in the short term? zIncrease grant rate to the maximum? zExpand responsibility for project development and implementation to the regions zApprove groups of small projects but there is still the management and capacity problem in small centers zWiden the definition of an environment project (air quality, flood control, monitoring, old industrial sites) zMobilise all sources of project preparation (IFIs etc) zCan the Cohesion Fund work with current resources?
