    Environmental and Nature Use Charges and pertinent bylaws have been adopted and introduced a certain set of economic tools environmental and nature use charges in 1998 2000 charges are paid for water use mining of useful underground resources use of biological resources disposal of hazardous substances into the environment placing industrial and municipal waste in the environment and production and import of environmentally hazardous commodities Moreover following the objective of improving environmental economic tools stated in the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper the following legislative acts were adopted in 2004 2005 A number of changes and amendments to the law On environmental and nature use charges have made the charge system more effective and efficient in its both fiscal and regulatory reduction of the volume of hazardous discharges into the environment aspects Adoption of the law On tariffs for compensation of damages caused to fauna and flora as a result of environmental violations 2005 and approval of assessment procedures for impact of economic activities on water and land resources and the atmosphere by the Government of Armenia allow environmental inspection bodies to ensure a more effective and efficient process of recording environmental damages and their compensation transfer to state budget It should be stated that the state budget allocation for the environmental action programme is not significant therefore all types of environmental charges fees and compensations for environmental damage are accumulated in the state budget and disbursed in a highly centralized manner The main shortcoming of the current system is that the charges collected for the purposes of funding environmental protection measures and programmes are only partially used for this purpose For instance according to some expert estimations Armenia s economic growth causes environmental damage commensurate with 8 10 of the country s annual GDP The current budget revenues from environmental charge collection do not exceed 0 25 0 27 of GDP i e are 20 to 40 times less than the damage caused According to latest analysis more than half of major resources collected for environmental protection purposes is used to finance other priorities Currently for more targeted use of environmental charges the Law On the Budget System stipulates the sum total of budget earmarked for environmental programmes shall be no less than the sum total of environmental charges actually collected in the preceding budget year With regard to environmental liability it should be mentioned that although OECD study has been conducted in Armenia and based on results of the study an assessment procedures for impact of economic activities on water and land resources and the atmosphere were elaborated and approved by the Government of Armenia that allow environmental inspection bodies to ensure a more effective and efficient process of recording environmental damages the methodology for assessment of environmental damage is not yet precise and comprehensive Georgia Georgia is a lower middle income country that has as its legitimate major policy priority to achieve sustained economic growth and related to this to substantially reduce poverty The Government s strategy is largely based on establishing a liberal and largely deregulated market economy and introducing stringent measures designed to minimize corruption and rent seeking However in this context the role of environmental policy was neglected moreover the role of environment in dealing with the external effects of economic activity in the form of pollution has effectively been ignored Among the major policy measures introduced by the government was a Tax reform enshrined in a new Tax Code entered into force in 2005 Its main objectives was the reduction of the tax burden and elimination of administrative barriers to doing business After approval of Tax Code there has been a significant change in the mix of instruments for environmental protection The new Tax Code abolished taxes on emissions of air and water pollutants alongside a tax on the use of natural resources dating from 2005 all of which had been introduced in the 1990s Also were eliminated a road transit fee on foreign motor vehicles and a tax on fuel imports Among the legal reforms the new Law on Licenses and Permits being endorsed in 2005 introduced mandatory auction based allocation of licenses for the use of natural resources Few changes have been made to existing product taxes on motor fuels and vehicles but there have been some improvements in the application of user charges for utility services The auctioning of licenses has become an important source of revenue for the central Government The level of fees rates for each of the natural resources is defined in the Law on Fees for the use natural Resources 2004 amended later by Law on Introduction of Changes and Amendments to the Law on Fees for the Use of Natural Resources Another set of instrument is fines for environmental offences As with pollution taxes fines per ton of excess emissions have not been altered since 90th Collection rates of fines for administrative violation were very low in the early 2000s around 5 but have increased significantly since the Environmental Inspectorate was established in 2005 For instance fines imposed in 2008 were almost collected However it should be mentioned that the current system of calculation of fines is regulated by the order of the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources and based on methodology that is not accurate does not consider any externalities It can be stated that the methodology for calculation was put in place by chance Goals and Objectives The overall objective of the project is to improve environmental management system in the countries through enhancement of the environmental liability regimes The specific objectives of the project are 1 To develop modern methodology for estimation of the monetary value of damage caused as a result of environmental pollution and exploitation of natural resources at the national level 2 To design and implement pilots in selected sectors to illustrate how the elaborated methodology would work in practice and explore replication opportunity at country level Activities There are following major activities will be implemented Activity 1 Inception

and Management Training November 2005 Tbilisi Georgia Peer Review of Environmental Compliance Assurance System of Armenia organisation of training for inspectorates June 2005 Yerevan Armenia The project was prepared in frame of OECD EAP Task Force and EECCA RECs joint work programme under the Programme Area 2 Environmental Policy Reform project JP 2 2 4 Training Programmes for Inspectorates and aims to promote a structured approach towards training of environmental inspectors and facilitate networking among specialized institutions in the EECCA region and with similar institutions in OECD and CEE countries Individual capacity or competence can be defined as a set of standardized requirements for an individual to properly perform specific duties within an organization and encompasses both knowledge and skills A continuous improvement of employees individual capacity is essential for any enforcement authority including State Environmental Inspectorate SEI to achieve its objectives and maintain high standards of service to the general public There is a clear need to change the current approach to training of the individuals within SEI and make it more coherent and structured based on a clear understanding of incentives to enhance performance In Armenia and Azerbaijan similarly to many other countries of EECCA the development of individual capacities of the employees faces a number of problems that hinder the successful full scale performance of the SEI The main problems linked to the training of inspectors in Armenia and Azerbaijan are lack of professional training opportunities for SEI specialists inconsistency of the knowledge flow lack of holistic approach to SEI specialist skills development limited access to up to date materials lack of cross country experience exchange Overall Objectives The overall objective of this project is to introduce a structured approach towards trainings for the employees of the State Environmental Inspectorate SEI of Armenia and Azerbaijan Specific Objectives The specific objectives of the project are Promotion of consistency in SEI planning and execution Improvement of SEI performance Establishment of a strong regional network of Environmental Inspectorates Sharing of experience on regular basis Expected Outcomes Increasing of skills and ability of State Environmental Inspectors Sharing experience between State Environmental Inspectors in Armenia and Azerbaijan Results to Date Activities The project implementation was initially delayed due to the following two major reasons 1 As part of joint work programme of EECCA RECs and OECD EAP Task Force project activities should have been started in parallel and under the guidance of the Secretariat of OECD EAP Task Force however due to objective reasons REC Caucasus has been informed that Secretariat was not able to start their part of activities on time due to late provision of funds from donor 2 Significant restructuring process started in REC Caucasus in the end of 2009 New institutional structure was approved by the RECs Board of Directors and introduced in January 2010 Due to changes contracts with the previous staff members were terminated but new programme staff has not been hired Moreover several internal and external audits started in organisation in 2010 Therefore implementation of some projects including this one was postponed Due to those facts the Project implementation process started with significant delays and relevant project reports were not submitted to the donor in accordance to contractual requirements Launching of the project and as well as preparatory meeting with State Environmental Inspectorate of Armenia and Azerbaijan were conducted in Baku September 10 2010 and Yerevan September 14 2010 Discussion on identification of initial methodology for needs assessment conducted with national authorities process of identification of competence profiles and major focus areas for possible trainings started Several consultation with OECD EAP Task Force secretariat partner of the project have been also conducted to finalise methodology for capacity needs assessment exercise and identification of targeted areas Relevant questionnaires were developed on the basis of the Guidance for the Organization of Trainings within State Environmental Inspectorates of EECCA countries elaborated by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD and sent to all stakeholders on December 2010 Filled questionnaires were submitted to REC Caucasus till January 17 2011 The filled in questionnaires have been analyzed by the Project Team in close cooperation with the Ministries of Environment The working group have been conducted in Armenia and Azerbaijan for the preparation of training need assessment report in March 2011 REC Caucasus with consultative and methodological support of the OECD aims to fill the existing gaps by implementing training needs assessment TNA for the staff members of the Inspectorate based on the methodology suggested by OECD and approbated in Georgia develop a coherent multi year training program and training materials based on Toolkit for Better Environmental Inspectorates and organize trainings for SEI employees which will provide them with practical and up to date knowledge and skills necessary to successful performance of SEI The Project introduces a structured approach towards trainings for the employees of the State SEI of Armenia and Azerbaijan and also establishes a mechanism of information exchange that will help SEI employees to continuously learn about new developments Project expected results Professional knowledge and skills gaps are identified through training needs assessments TNA Gaps are addressed through conduction of trainings session and knowledge transfer The structured approach with strong mechanisms of training provision for SEI is established The project is prepared in frame of OECD EAP Task Force and EECCA RECs joint work program under the Program Area 2 Environmental Policy Reform project JP 2 2 4 Training Programs for Inspectorates and aims to promote a structured
