The administration of public finances allocated for environmental protection and water management using priority programmes and passed by the Supervisory Board, was introduced to the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management in 2009.
The traditional administration, through priority programmes, has been enhanced by consultations concerning the programme structures and assumptions. Consultations initiated by the National Fund include: NFOŚiGW Club, Forum ‘Energy – effect – environment’ and Forum ‘Good practices in waste management’ as well as sociological research of the programmes’ acceptance at the stage of their preparation and implementation.
The forums enrich and organise knowledge and information while providing a ground for exchanging experiences in the relevant fields of environmental protection and water management. The forums create a platform for complex legal-organisational and technical consultations, as well as, evaluation of priority programmes being prepared and implemented.
Priority programmes are consistent with Polish and EU legislation, particularly in the areas of managing public funds (permitted public assistance) and environmental goals – section of national economy 22 (water management) and 41 (environment).
Priority programmes also cover activities of the Operational Program ‘Infrastructure and Environment’ (implemented with EU assistance). The purpose of using priority programmes as a public finance management system in the National Fund is to create and update priority programmes as a multiple cross-section of information, which then makes it possible:
