The overall purpose of the second year (May 2018 - April 2019) country Work Programme is to follow-up on the EU4Energy Governance activities carried out during the first year of implementation, as well as to respond to additional requests for support, received from the Partner Country. Activities included into the Work Programme are taking into account recommendations, coming from earlier EU4Energy Governance activities and the Energy Charter’ reports and are considered necessary for achieving the objectives of the EU4Energy actions.
The overall objectives for EU4Energy Governance activities in the second year are:
- Provide support to the operationalisation of the agreed policy proposals from the Component 2 or from other EU4Energy reports/studies;
- Support to introducing more efficient and effective procedures including cross-ministerial cooperation and public consultation process;
- Strengthen the technical, institutional and administrative capacity in the Ministry of Energy and other key ministries and agencies.
These objectives were identified following a comprehensive assessment regarding the status of the legislative, regulatory and institutional environment in the energy sector of the Republic of Azerbaijan, consultations with national authorities, the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan and other stakeholders.
