Nove to Prepare Report on Environmental Corruption Risks and Measures to Prevent Corruption and Fraud

Nove to Prepare Report on Environmental Corruption Risks and Measures to Prevent Corruption and Fraud


The Nove law office and Estonia's Center for Applied Research (CentAR) have been selected to prepare a "Study to map environmental field corruption risks and measures to prevent corruption and fraud" report by the country's Ministry of the Environment.

According to Nove, "the purpose of the study -- which is complex but also of great practical value -- is to give an overview of what are the main areas of corruption and fraud in the environmental field and to contribute to the development and implementation of measures to prevent corruption and fraud. An important aim of the study is to find out what kind of problems have occurred in preventing corruption and fraud in the environmental field, relying on Estonian and international experience. As an outcome of mapping relevant needs, cases, and problems the drawn up legal analysis will be the basis for an assessment of whether the corruption problems require amendments of law or whether the current measures are sufficient but need to be implemented in a more efficient way."

The study will be composed by Urmas Volens and Eerik Heldna from Nove and Epp Kallaste and Janno Jarve from CentAR.
