The "EU for a better environment – Developing the frame for the compliance with the judiciary of the EU in the area of air, chemicals and horizontal issues" is financed from the IPA 2014 resources of the EU, which are managed by the Ministry of Finance - Sector for contracting and financing programs from EU funds (CFCU).

The project should support, improve and strengthen the Ministry for Environment Protection, the Republic Geodesic Bureau and other relevant institutions of the Republic of Serbia in the preparation of strategy, program and plan documents necessary for the implementation of the sector policy in the area of ambience air protection and key directives from this area, for implementation of the European regulations on chemicals and biocides, as well as the establishing of the national infrastructure of geo-spatial information on the environment.

The project includes the creation of the national strategy, that is, a program for the protection of the ambience air with the relevant action plan, drafting of eight specific plans for the implementation of the execution of the European directives/regulations (DSIP/RSIP), out of which five are related to the sector for air protection, one to the INSPIRE directive concerning horizontal issues, which is used to organize the national infrastructure of geo-spatial information on the environment, and two specific plans for the implementation of the EU regulations from the area of management of chemicals. The long-term investment and financial plan (MIFP) of the Ministry for Protection of the Environment will be improved and updated with the newly identified financial and investment priorities from the areas which are covered by this project.  

The end users of the outcomes of this project are the Ministry for the Protection of the Environment, the Republic Geodesic Bureau and the Negotiation Group 27. The strategy and plan documents which will be prepared within the frames of the project will aid Serbia in the negotiations of joining the European Union, contribute to improving the quality of ambient air and the health of the citizens of Serbia, and establish a unique system of geo-oriented bases and meta-bases information on the environment, which will be available to the citizens of Serbia.
