European support for “green growth” in Moldova

During five years, the European Union, together with the development partners, has promoted the “green growth” in the Republic of Moldova through a project to green the economies in the Eastern Partnership countries. In Moldova, a number of companies helped implement mechanisms for the efficient use of resources. Now they can economize on water and energy, Aneil Singh, Head of the Operations Section of the EU Delegation to Moldova, said in a conference held on December 15, IPN reports.

Within the EU-funded Project “Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighborhood” that was launched in 2013, there were developed strategic planning policies in the field of green economy and national “green growth” indicators. There were strengthened the capacities of experts and officials in the field of strategic environmental planning and environmental assessment. There were implemented two pilot-projects on the strategic assessment of Orhei town and the program for promoting green economy nationwide.

Minister of Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment Vasile Bitca said the project envisions relevant actions in ecological agriculture, strategic environmental assessment, regional development and planning, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. These measures bring a realistic view as to the promotion of green economy in Moldova.

The Government’s deputy secretary general Valentin Guznac said important measures to promote green economy in key sectors were integrated into the program for promoting green economy in Moldova, which, after public consultations and assessment by ministries, is now at the Ministry of Justice and will be presented to the Cabinet for examination and approval by this yearend. “We will promote the principle of green economy in all the sectors nationwide so as to ensure sustainable economic development and the welfare of the population of the Republic of Moldova,” stated Valentin Guznac.

Iuliana Dragalin, secretary of state at the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure, noted that the development of the potential of greening the SMEs, promotion of environmental management standards at these enterprises alongside quality management standards, enhancement of energy efficiency, more intense use of renewable sources of energy and reduction of dependence on imported energy can create preconditions for a sustainable economy, for improving competitiveness and further conquering regional and global markets.

Rodica Iordanov, executive director of the public association “EcoContact”, said that owing to this project that was implemented with the involvement of a number of environmental NGOs, the method of cooperation was modified and now they all have the same interest. They all want to improve the quality of environment in Moldova and to create favorable conditions for the economic and social development of the country.

The project financed by the Europe Union was implemented in 2013-2017.
