Manual Green Agenda

(by Milieukontakt Oost-Europa and ZOE, 25 10 2005)

Milieukontakt Oost-Europa, the Center for Sustainable Development of Rural Communities (ZOE) and Croatian NGOs have developed a manual on Green Agenda. Green Agenda is a systematic and practically proven process for developing a local or (micro-) regional plan with the aim to tackle environmental issues. It is about broad participation of local stakeholders and sustainable development. The manual can also be used to analyse one or several issues (waste, water, biodiversity, etc.).

Green Agenda is similar to Local Agenda 21, but focusing more on the ‘green’ issues. The outcome is not only a Green Plan, but also the execution of projects that solve the environmental problems. The manual combines theory and practice. It includes step-by-step implementation plan. We recommend this manual to all interested parties especially to environmental organisations and municipalities interested in improving their local conditions.
The manual can be downloaded from our site in English and Croatian.
The hard-copies of the manual on Green Agenda are also available. For the English version, please, contact Milieukontakt Oost-Europa via e-mail: green-agenda@milieukontakt.nl and for the Croatian copy, please, contact our Croatian partners via the web-site www.zeleni-plan.org.

Public participation in Central Asia

(by editor S. Bortsova, 24 02 2005)

The libraries of ecological organizations in Central Asia have received a useful addition to their collections. Prepared with the Milieukontakt support, the book, Public Participation in Central Asia in the Legislative Process, was published in the second half of 2004.
The book was written by the working group of the similarly-named project. In the course of the project, the group analysed the possibilities for citizen participation in the legislative process in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. The book, written in Russian, includes an introduction and summary in English. The working group hopes that this book will be of interest not only to NGO’s in Central Asia, but also to international groups working in these republics.
