EPIGOV

Environmental Policy Integration and Multilevel Governance

EPIGOV Logo
  • Project no.3313
  • Duration 02/2006 - 08/2008

EPIGOV is a Coordinated Action of 18 European research institutes under the 6th Research Framework Programme of the European Union. Governmental and non-governmental organisations on the local, regional, national, European and global level make efforts to integrate environmental requirement into their operations. These efforts at different levels affect each other, thereby improving or weakening environmental policy integration (EPI) and sustainable development. EPIGOV aims to structure these efforts in order to identify future research lines.

Work packages:

  • Identification of modes of governance which are typically used to promote EPI at particular levels of governance;
  • Identification of synergies and negative impacts across the governance levels for improving interaction.
