Mechanisms of Horizontal Integration
The National Strategy for the Environment and Action Plan (2000-06) was approved
by the Council of Ministers in June 2001. Improvements since the last National
Strategy (1992) have been made in terms of collaboration and horizontal integration
through the establishment of inter-ministerial commissions and councils, the
adoption of programmes and plans on behalf of the Council of Ministers as well
as ad-hoc inter-institutional working groups to solve specific problems. It
is pointed out in the strategy that the EU integration process has been a strong
driver for improving horizontal collaboration.
