The European Commission, DG IX, has published a call for expressions of interest on the integration of the environment in other Community policies. The call covers the preparation and promotion of training sessions on the tools and methods for managing the integration of the environment in other Community policies (industry, energy, transport, agriculture and tourism), within the framework of the implementation of the Fifth Action Programme on the Environment and Sustainable Development of the Community, adopted since 1993. This approach involves the development of cooperation on the part of Directorate-General XI (Environment, Nuclear Safety and Civil Protection) with its many partners: the other Directorates-General of the Commission and the other European institutions, Member States, associations and target groups identified in the Fifth Programme. The aim is to encourage these partners, and particularly the other Commission Directorates-General, to make improvements in their practices and to take account of environmental requirements when drawing up policies for which they are responsible. The training therefore aims at giving Directorate-General XI's officials and agents training in the tools and methods of managing the integration of the environment in other policies. This will be based on the analysis of all aspects of DG XI's role and decision-making process, with the aim of developing strategies for implementing and achieving the objectives set by the Fifth Programme. To this end, DG XI's agents must act as promoters and provide their partners with methodological and technical back-up. The final date of validity of the list drawn up following the call for expressions of interest is 31 December 1995. The applicants' attention is drawn to the fact that this call for expressions of interest has been published with the aim of drawing up a list of potential service providers to be consulted by the Commission. Candidates are thus requested not to ask for further information at this stage.
