Low Carbon South East Europe

Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea, Italy

The institutional mandate of the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea (IMELS) includes the promotion, protection and restoration of the environment, with the aim of ensuring good quality of life, enhancing the sustainable use of natural resources and preventing and controlling pollution. Its operational objectives comprise the publication of national legal acts, participation in international initiatives related to environmental protection and the implementation of EU environmental policies. The ministry is also involved in several international programmes aimed at spreading low-carbon technologies. In the last decade, IMELS has supported the sustainable development of countries in South Eastern Europe through a large number of memorandums of understanding signed with various ministries. The LOCSEE project will help to build the capacity of IMELS staff and to increase the transposition of EU guidelines and directives. The project will enable IMELS to expand its networks in the SEE region and will provide recommendations for improving existing climate change/low-carbon policies
