Since the founding of ELLE in 1998, the company has supported Latvian and foreign public authorities and institutions in the optimization of structures and functions, activity planning, advanced training of employees in different fields, and team building – all of which constitute the so-called “institutional capacity building”.
ELLE has provided consultations to the departments and institutions subordinated to the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development. ELLE experts have also demonstrated their solid knowledge and wide range experiences while participating in numerous international projects. Support to creation of the environmental management system was provided in Uzbekistan, significant elements of the National Environmental Action Programme (NEAP) developed in Georgia – both with the World Bank funding. ELLE has successfully implemented several EU technical assistance and Latvian development cooperation projects in Moldova aimed at implementation of the European Union environmental requirements. As consultants of the United Nations Development Programme, ELLE experts have participated in capacity building projects in Moldova and Turkmenistan.
