Enhancing Access to Information and Public Participation in Environmental Decision Making in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro - 2nd Progress Report
This Report is prepared for component 3.4 of Objective 3 of the Danube Regional Project (phase 2). The overall focus under Objective 3 is to enhance awareness-raising in civil society and reinforce the participation of NGOs and other interested parties in water management and pollution reduction (nutrients and toxic substances) with particular attention to trans boundary cooperation and river basin management in the context of the Water Framework Directive. This report has three parts. The first part describes in detail the activities over the past five months since July 15, 2005 when the first progress report was filed. It does not deal with those activities which have been already covered in the Inception report submitted in December 2004 or the first progress report. Part I will provide the project donors and the overall DRP and ICPDR management with an overview of the most important steps taken, findings and decisions made, results achieved in the past five months of the project. The second part of the report describes the activities that will be undertaken in the next six months and the various work products or deliverables that are prepared for these activities or will result from them. Part II starts with a short description of these activities. It also provides an overview of the detailed work plan, which lists all the activities, those that have been already completed and those ahead, as well as the proposed changes in their timing. Part III includes a financial report for the period of June 1, 2005 and October 31, 2005, and a request for budget reallocation by the Consortium after consideration of the proposed country activities to be carried out by the project countries.
