Inception Report on Component 3.4 Danube Regional Project "Enhancing Access to Information and Public Participation in Environmental Decision Making"in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro
This Inception 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 transboundary cooperation and river basin management in the context of the Water Framework Directive. Component 3.4 begins with an Inception Phase. The purpose of this initial phase of four months is to take the first steps in getting the project started and to take decisions on the activities that will take place in the second, implementation phase of the project. This report has two parts. The first part describes the inception phase. Not each and every step taken or decision made is mentioned in Part I of the report. The aim of Part I is to provide the project donors and those responsible for both the larger DRP and Component 3.4 with an overview of the most important steps taken, findings and decisions made in the first four months of the project. The second part of the report is dedicated to the Implementation Phase of the project. Part II starts with a detailed work plan, which indicates the different activities that will be undertaken and the different work products that are prepared for these activities or will result from them. The work plan also provides a detailed timeframe of when and how activities are undertaken and when and how work products are prepared. A following section on activities highlights some of the main activities and work products planned for the Implementation Phase, describing what these activities and products consist of and how the Consortium has envisioned they should take place. The last section for Part II indicates a minor budget reallocation, decided by the Consortium after reconsideration of one of its activities in the Implementation Phase.
