Social and Economic Benefits of Enhanced Environmental Protection

A transition to a green economy would create more social well-being and reduce environmental risks. This is the result of an analysis of Socio-economic Benefits of Enhanced Environment Protection in the European Neighbourhood partner countries and the Russian Federation. The Israel country report is available for download.

The overall objective of the project "Social and Economic Benefits of Enhanced Environment Protection in ENP Countries" is to increase the importance of the environment on the agenda of these governments and improve their awareness on social and economic benefits of environmental improvements by analysing these benefits for each specific country.

The project's activities are undertaken in all ENP countries and the Russian Federation:

  • Eastern countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine and the Russian Federation.
  • Southern countries: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Syria and Tunisia.

The report [pdf, 2.2 MB, English] is available for download.

All project reports, including those for the remaining ENP countries, are available for download on the project website.
