Environment-purposed aims within the framework of the New Hungary Development Plan
Keywords:European Union, New Hungary Development Plan, Environment and Energy Operational Programme, National Strategic Reference Framework of Hungary 2007–2013
The environment protection got more attention in the last few years. The New Hungary Development Plan (shortly: NHDP) 2007-2013 has a detached operational program for environment-purposes. In the period between 2007-2013 approximately 8.000 billion HUF can be called down as not refundable subsidy in the framework of NHDP. The aim of this study is to present and analyse the priorities and programs, and the utilisation of the supports within the Environment and Energy Operational Program (EEOP). Every 22nd HUF was paid out for environment and energy modernisation or development in the last three years. It is a gladsome tendency that people and companies pay more attention to environment consciousness, but the financial means utilised for this purpose are still very low. It is also regrettable that only one-third of the submitted tenders was accepted by the National Development Agency.
