The European Union has signed a new financial agreement with Belarus to support resource efficiency policy in the country.
The new “EU4Belarus: Resource Efficiency Facility for Belarus” programme, with a budget of €15 million, will aim to enhance the efficiency of the use of energy and natural resources in the country. Brest and Hrodna will be the pilot regions for the programme.
The EU will also support policy dialogue, coordination among and synergy between key sector stakeholders, donors, potential investors and other players. The programme’s technical assistance will be directed at strengthening capacities of the government in formulating and regulating policy in relevant key areas.
The programme will help to identify and design interventions to propagate investments to save energy and introduce alternatives for better resource management. It will provide for pilot actions to upgrade municipal and private infrastructure in the targeted regions.
