Evaluation of South East Europe Sustainable Energy Project (SEESEP) 2012-2016
SEE Change Net (SEECN)
Catalys produced a comprehensive evaluation for the South East Europe Sustainable Energy Project (SEESPEP), an association composed of 17 CSOs working to move energy legislation and policy of South East Europe towards EU 2020 targets, with adherence to the Energy Community legal framework.
The aim of our evaluation was to assess the results of the project and offer strategies that would seek to shape future activities.
The evaluation documents and analyses the implementation and development of the project in the period of 2012-2016, with emphasis on the latter half of this timeframe.
The project commenced in the December of 2012, operating in: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.
The project’s first term ended in the later months of 2013 before SEESPEP was successful in a bid for a further 2 years funding.
The Ministerial Council of Energy Community in October 2016 in Sarajevo, adopted a decision expanding the current scope of environmental acquis.
Also, two new directives were introduced by decision to the extent they relate to energy: Strategic Environmental Assessment Directive and the Strategic Environmental Assessment Directive.
As a first step towards its full application in the Energy Community, the Ministerial Council adopted a non-binding recommendation on the implementation of Regulation (EU) No 525/2013 on a Mechanism for Monitoring and Reporting GHG Emissions and for reporting other information at national and Union level relevant to climate change.
The project effectively delivered the intended outcomes with regards to building capacity and influencing policy. CSOs as well as all other stakeholders involved recognised the growth in capacity. Energy Community impacts, regional investments and national achievements are also clear.
