Implementation Challenges - options for transferrring results into concrete IMPEL actions

The European Union Network for the Implementation and Enforcement of Environmental Law (IMPEL) conducted an "Implementation Challenge Survey" in 2017. This survey asked practitioners from environmental authorities across Europe about their views on obstacles and challenges to compliance with European environmental law and ways to improve implementation. Following up on a first analysis of the results, the InVR analysed respondents' views on possible solutions to overcome challenges in applying and enforcing environmental legislation and the role of IMPEL therein. The InVR furthermore revised the questionnaire with a view to improving and simplifying it for the next wave of the periodic survey.
