  6. 6. Current situation with environmental directives implementation (4) Directive on EIA: draft law “On environmental impact assessment” – registered in the parliament, but not adopted Directive on wild birds: draft laws “On changes to some legal acts of Ukraine” (on biodiversity protection, and fauna protection) – adopted by the parliaments as the basis Directive on pollutants from large combustion plants: just secondary legislation (on the form of permits for emissions) Directive on sulphur: on July 10, 2014 the Technical regulation on requirements to motor petroleum, diesel, marine and boiler fuel came into force. But the first deadline December 31, 2014 (for environmental class Euro 3).
  7. 7. Main challenges No political will Law drafting doesn’t mean real implementation Partial implementation of directives is not effective and sometimes impossible No coordination between relevant state bodies No clear understanding of the directives’ requirements Lack of transparency in the implementation process Lack of comprehensive vision and planning of reforms
  8. 8. New perspectives Possible positive impact of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement implementation – implementation plans for each directive are under development Window of opportunities after the new government appointment and new parliament starting work Creation of the Multilateral Working Group on Reforms
