Thank you for visiting the home page of the Baltic Environmental Forum-Latvia, called “BEF”.
The BEF was founded by the Baltic Ministries of Environment, Germany and the European Commission as a technical assistance project aiming at strengthening the co-operation among the Baltic environmental authorities. With EU accession the technical assistance projects ended.
However, to keep the networks active and to implement more projects in the Baltic Sea Region the BEF team has founded in 2003 NGOs in Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and Germany.
Projects with the entire goal to foster implementation of EU environmental policy in the Baltic states are the main activity of BEF-LV and its team works on different policy fields: energy efficiency, water quality & river basin management, chemical policy development, consumers awareness raising, nature conservation and Natura 2000 implementation.
