Network Coordinators

The network coordinators are senior officials/environmental inspectors involved in the implementation, compliance and enforcement of environmental legislation. They represent the countries in the network. Network coordinators must be mandated to take decisions on behalf of the countries they represent in relation to the objectives and activities of the network. Bosnia and Herzegovina will nominate two network coordinators, covering both entities. Each country may designate a deputy network coordinator.

In each ECENA member country the network coordinator and the deputy network coordinator serve as ECENA focal points for all national-level stakeholders interested in the network’s activities and outcomes. Network coordinators and deputy network coordinators are encouraged to share experience and information from ECENA activities with all interested stakeholders in the country. They are also requested to provide information and other relevant support to the ECENA Secretariat for the benefit of the network.
