Representatives of a mission from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that was examining Slovakia’s environmental policies left Slovakia on October 6. They had spent over a week in the country since arriving on September 27.
A source from the Slovak Ministry of Agriculture, Environment and Regional Development informed the SITA newswire that the mission’s aim was to assess the environmental efficiency of Slovakia and to draw up recommendations that would improve the country’s environmental situation. The recommendations will form the outcome of the OECD mission. These are formulated with the aim of assisting the assessed country in improving environmental efficiency.
The OECD does not only focus on the environmental sector when assessing individual countries but also considers the impacts of the industrial, transport and construction sectors on the environment, as well as monitoring the application of suitable legislative, economic and motivational tools and the interconnection of economic, social and environmental policies.
