Conservationists List 60-Plus Environmental Problems that Bulgarian Institutions Must Address

Sofia, January 4 (BTA) – Bulgarian conservationist NGOs will hand the Ministers of Environment and Water, of Agriculture and Food, and of Regional Development and Public Works an updated list of ten key subjects and more than 60 outstanding environmental problems, Toma Belev of For the Nature Coalition of environmentalist organizations said in a BTA interview.
Conservationists no longer see a direct link between the availability of EU financing and solving some environmental problems in this country. They rather blame the competent institutions’ own failure to seize opportunities. “When a government takes office, we compile a long list of unsolvedĀ  problems and submit it,” Belev said, adding that the list has remained unchanged over the last seven or eight years, under five successive governments, with just an item or two dropping from time to time. He cited the problem solved in 2014 with the adoption of the cadastral maps of the Bulgarian Black Sea coast
and the dune communities. MORE
