01.06.2012 - 30.11.2016

The project aims at reducing emission of greenhouse gases by increasing energy efficiency in public buildings and improving the living environment of people through the promotion of energy-efficient building standards. In particular, four buildings are renovated and two new buildings constructed according to technical specifications formulated in the feasibility study on low-energy buildings developed specifically for the climate of Estonia.

Financial Reporting Technical Assistance Project

01.02.2009 - 31.12.2015

Despite major reforms by the new EU Member States to their legal
and regulatory frameworks governing corporate sector accounting
and auditing, there is a substantial unfinished institutional
development agenda in the field of financial reporting. The
Financial Reporting Technical Assistance Program provides support
to five national administrations (in Estonia as well as the Czech
Republic, Poland, Latvia, Slovenia) which face capacity
constraints and challenges in fully implementing – both in law
and in practice – the very demanding obligations imposed by the
rapidly-evolving acquis communautaire in this field.

Project completed

Project Preparation Facility (PPF)

23.01.2009 - 14.04.2012

The Swiss Contribution to enlargement aims to finance a broad variety of projects. The PPF provided the necessary financial assistance to enable Executing Agencies to submit high quality project proposals. This was especially important in the case of complex projects.
