Hide / Show Abstract

On a general level the policy level responsibility of GPP and PP seems to be divided in all five countries. The responsibility of the national Action Plan on GPP lies at the Environmental Ministry or Agency, whereas the Finance/Administration Ministry usually leads the development of public procurement. The co-operation at policy level seems to be more led by GPP. As such a stronger commitment to mainstreaming is needed at ministry level.
