Conference update

Dear colleagues!

Addressing the popular demand and following up some discussions we had recently, the Organising Committee decided to expand the scope of the Conference “Environmental Knowledge and Policy Innovation between East and West” ( and add Knowledge and policy transfer issues related to EU enlagements as a key theme of the Conference.

The reason for adding this theme is that Central European countries that joined the EU in 2004, 2007 and 2013 are still very much in the process of transition in terms of natural resource governance, and in many instances and in many sectors they many similarities to EaP countries and Russia. The lessons Central European countries have learned (and still learning) are, therefore, extremely important for EaP and Russia.
