Major Challenges and perspectives for Cooperation

The Joint Russian-Estonian Commission on the Protection and Rational Use of Transboundary Waters has recently been restructured. There are now two working groups instead of four, and therefore the scope of activities for each group has broadened. The working group on cooperation with local authorities, NGOs and international organizations which existed in the period 1999–2004 was abandoned, although its functions were transferred to a new group. The public is not directly involved in the work of the Commission, although experts (including NGOs) may take part in meetings of the working groups. Although the Agreement of 1997 lacks specific reporting requirements, strengthening the reporting mechanisms and dissemination of reports could contribute to the effectiveness of cooperation.
