1 Structural and Cohesion Funds – an Important Tool to Support Climate Protection Improving the climate resilience of Cohesion Policy Funding Programmes: results and strategies for the future – report produced within the framework of ENEA-MA Ruslan Zhechkov 18 February 2011

2 Contents of the Presentation Introduction of REC Context – ENEA-MA WG on Cohesion Policy and Climate Change Report – Improving the Climate Resilience of the Cohesion Policys Funding Programmes Content of the report Key messages of the report

3 Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC) … is an international organisation with a mission to assist in solving environmental problems (…) The REC is legally based on a charter signed by the governments of 29 countries and the EC 190 staff (some 30 nationalities) Offices in 17 countries Operations beyond Central and Eastern Europe

4 ENEA-MA (European Network of Environmental and Management Authorities) Working Group Cohesion Policy and Climate Change Kick-off: 2008 Chair: EC and Regional Environmental Center for CEE Participating countries: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Finland, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and UK Target groups: Member States, Managing Authorities, European Commission

5 Report: Improving Climate Resilience of the Cohesion Policys Funding Programmes Objectives Inspire decision makers to improve climate resilience of the programmes Summarise knowledge, tools and measures in MS Facilitate information sharing, know-how transfer across MS Basis Stocktaking of innovative practices across EU-27 Content of the report Integrating CC into strategic planning development Climate proofing the project cycle Project and Programme monitoring and evaluation Climate Change as an economic driver Conclusions and recommendations

6 1. Climate Proofing the Project Cycle Programming – Integrating Climate Change into Strategic Planning Development Examples of tackling Climate Change in the NSRF (UK, France, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia) Examples of encouraging Climate Change positive investments (OP Berlin) Possible revision of the OPs to reduce their carbon intensity

7 ProgrammingProject Selection Preparation and design Appraisal and scoring Implementation and monitoring 2. Climate Proofing the Project Cycle

8 ProgrammingProject Selection Preparation and design Appraisal and scoring Implementation and monitoring 2. Climate Proofing the Project Cycle

9 ProgrammingProject Selection Preparation and design Appraisal and scoring Implementation and monitoring 2. Climate Proofing the Project Cycle

10 ProgrammingProject Selection Preparation and design Appraisal and scoring Implementation and monitoring 3. Project and Programme Monitoring and Evaluation

11 4. Climate Change as an Economic Driver Opportunities for growth and employment through investments: CC mitigation projects Adaptation projects Project that make the economic case of investments into low carbon economy Examples of how conventional economic projects were adapted to reduce their carbon intensity Skills/education based projects

12 Key Messages (1) General: A combination of approaches is needed Restrict financing of projects with negative impact on climate change but when it is unavoidable – others should counterbalance the impact – neutrality Integration of Climate Change in all projects, not only environmental Stronger demands from the EC - gradually make a shift from voluntary demands to obligatory requirements for Member States

13 Key Messages (2) Programming Project Cycle Monitoring Communication
