OECD Environmental Performance Reviews: Estonia 2017

OECD Environmental Performance Reviews provide independent assessments of countries’ progress towards their environmental policy objectives. Reviews promote peer learning, enhance government accountability, and provide targeted recommendations aimed at improving environmental performance, individually and collectively. They are supported by a broad range of economic and environmental data, and evidence-based analysis. Each cycle of Environmental Performance Reviews covers all OECD countries and selected partner economies. The most recent reviews include Chile and France (2016).

This report is the first Environmental Performance Review of Estonia. It evaluates progress towards sustainable development and green growth, with a focus on waste and materials management, and mining and the environment.

Hide / Show Abstract

Estonia has made significant progress in upgrading its regulatory framework for environmental management and advancing environmental democracy. However, more needs to be done to improve the coherence of environmental requirements and ensure better compliance with them, as well as to build human and technical capacity at the local level. This chapter analyses Estonia’s environmental governance system. It reviews the regulatory framework for environmental impact assessment and permitting, as well as compliance assurance instruments. The chapter also assesses progress in promoting public participation in decision making and access to environmental information, education and justice.
