Joint Bodies

A joint Russian Federation-Belarus Commission acts on the basis of the Agreement of 2002.

Major Challenges and perspectives for Cooperation

The cooperation takes place in the framework of bilateral environmental protection agreements (Agreement between Belarus and Lithuania on Cooperation in Environmental Protection of 1995, Agreement between Russian Federation and Lithuania on Cooperation in Environmental Protection of 1999).

There is also an Agreement of 2003 between the Joint Research Center of the Ministry of Environment of Lithuania and the Hydrometeorology Agency of Lithuania, on the one side, and the Kaliningrad Centre on Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, on the other, Concerning Cooperation in Monitoring and Exchange of Data on Transboundary Waters.

The draft of a trilateral intergovernmental Agreement on Cooperation in the Field of Use and Protection of Water Resources in Neman/Nemunas River Basin was prepared in 2003. The draft provides for the establishment of a joint commission. The draft is going through approval procedures in the countries.
