National Focal Points
The overall method of implementation of the project is to build on the Eionet model in the ENP East region.
Eionet is a partnership network of the EEA and its member and cooperating countries, involving more than 1 000 experts and 350 national institutions across Europe.
The NFPs work closely with the NIT to drive the projects in their respective countries. These teams comprise experts from different thematic areas. The establishment of links to relevant expertise in other ministries/national administrations is a step towards setting up coordination structures at national level. The NIT brings together different thematic areas around a joint task of securing transparent access to environmental information.
Support through dedicated national assistants is foreseen to ensure continuous engagement of national stakeholders and better operationalisation of the NIT's work, as well as coordination of project events and implementation of the agreed activities at country level.
