Developing an environmental governance assessment framework  
The workshop on the scope and criteria of the environmental governance assessment framework in the EU Member States is the first of a series of three workshops. It is organized under a project initiated by the European Commission (DG Environment) and carried out by the Institute for European Environmental Policy and its partners.

The objective of this project is to develop a framework for assessment of environmental governance and administrative performance in the Member States specific for the implementation of environmental legislation and policies.

Such an assessment framework based on criteria and indicators shall be used for the development and better implementation of environmental governance policies and legislation and as a basis for the future country-based assessments under the 'governance' section of the Environment Implementation Review.
