The event “Towards Green Transformation of the Republic of Moldova” within the EU Green Week took place on 3 June 2022.

Since 2019 the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Moldova and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration and Ministry of Economy, in partnership with EU4Environment and the European Union Delegation in the Republic of Moldova conducted three national campaigns within the EU Green Week 2019, 2020 and 2021 (https://eu4moldova.eu/eu-green-week-2021/).

The year 2022 was dedicated to the EU Green Deal, the new growth strategy of the European Union, aiming to make the EU economy resource-efficient and sustainable with a special focus on circular economy, zero pollution and biodiversity.

The EU4Environment event aimed to show how the Programme contributes to the EU ambition for a zero pollution and clean environment, biodiversity conservation and promotion of circular economy in the Republic of Moldova. The participants of the event:

  • reviewed progress in addressing environmental challenges in the Republic of Moldova and the EaP region;
  • discussed the ways how to address remaining challenges, including eco-labelling and eco-innovation promotion, RECP and green public procurement;
  • raised awareness on biodiversity conservation, protected areas and forest management;
  • shared experience on monitoring progress towards a green economy.

EU4Environment Implementing Partners (OECD, UNECE, UNEP, UNIDO and World Bank) also joined the meeting.
