INTRODUCTION

Background This Inventory Report has been prepared by Environmental Resources Management (ERM) as the key output of Phase 1 of a project entitled: Evaluation of the Phare-financed Energy and Environment Programme. The Report contains the results of the inventory and a description of methods used. The inventory is based on records of all funds committed to Phare national and multi-country energy and environment programmes between 1990 and 1997. It covers 10 candidate member states including: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania and Bulgaria. The inventory is designed to be used as a basis for selecting a representative sample of projects for detailed evaluation during Phase 2. The evaluation will focus on defining the relevance, effectiveness and impact of past Phare programming. The results of the evaluation will lead to a set of general recommendations for future programming, within the context of Phares evolving role as a proactive and strategic instrument for directing the accession of selected CECs.

1.1.2

Approach to the Inventory This report follows three months of preparation and brief field visits to all 10 candidate member states. As there is currently no unified list of Phare energy and environment programmes and projects, the primary purpose of the field visits was to compile a detailed inventory. In addition to listing projects, we collected information on the outputs and objectives of each as a basis for classification. In terms of output we distinguish between Institutional reform and Investment projects, as follows: Institutional reform including - organisations; pricing; regulations; and awareness; Investment including - physical assets; demonstrations; investment funds; and investment preparation. There are a number of other projects which do not fall easily within these two categories. These include strategic planning projects and support for PMUs, both of which we consider to be inputs rather than outputs. Critical aid projects address specific issues at a given time and have not been included within institutional reform or investment. There are also a number of unknowns for which insufficient information is available and projects of multiple output. 4

At the objectives level, projects divide into those which aim to achieve one of the following: energy savings; improved energy supply; reduced waste and water use; improved waste services and water supply; pollution reduction; and biodiversity conservation.

Following classification, we coded all projects and entered them into a database (operated via Microsoft Access). The database has proved to be an effective way of collating the inventory and presenting the results both visually and numerically. We present a more detailed description of methods used during inventory and classification in Section 2 of this report, as well as a full print-out of the database as Annex A. The full inventory, by country and by sector is presented as a separate document to this report (Appendix A).

1.2

INVENTORY RESULTS

The inventory consists of 795 projects with a total expenditure (based on funds committed) of about 570 MECU. Figure 1 presents the evolution of the programme from 1990 to 1997. The graph shows an expected distribution of strategic studies peaking during the early years and dropping off thereafter, and a similar distribution for institutional reform, though rising again during the later years. We have included critical aid as a separate line to show an expected peak in the early years and to distinguish this from investments which are surprisingly high during the early years. Figure 1 also shows that expenditure has been declining since 1996. Figure 1: Evolution of Phare Energy and Environment Programmes

Figure 2 presents the average size of projects demonstrating a typical bimodal distribution. Small projects (under 1.0 MECU) are the most numerous while larger projects (over 1.0 MECU) account for most of the spending - 70% of total expenditure.

Total expenditure on energy and environment sector programmes by country is presented in Figure 3. Three countries dominate overall spending including, in ascending order, Hungary, Poland and Bulgaria. With the exception of Bulgaria, there is less variance in the size of the energy programme between countries that the environment programme. Expenditure on energy is surprisingly low both in Hungary and Poland considering their relative size. Expenditure on the energy programme in Bulgaria is particularly high, as compared to other countries. Lithuania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic are the only two countries which appear to have equal spending on energy and environment, with all other countries tending to favour one or the other.

Figure 4 presents expenditure by output. Investments in physical assets dominate the programme both for energy and environment. Other important 7

project outputs include institutional support for organisations, investment preparation and strategic studies. Project management support is the 5th largest output category accounting for about 7% of total expenditure. Figure 4: Expenditure (MECU) by output

Expenditure (M E C U )

Table 3 presents expenditure as a matrix of project outputs against project objectives. Overall, it shows that about 20% of all expenditure is on institutional reform and about 60% on investment activities; the remainder being classified as other. The cells in the matrix define groupings of projects of similar output and objective. We have identified ten key project groupings (based on total expenditure) which are marked in bold. Collectively these key project groupings account for about 380 MECU or about 70% of total expenditure. Figure 5 compares expenditure on the ten key project groupings showing considerable variation. In five out of ten groups, expenditure is in the range of 10-30 MECU. For the remaining groupings expenditure ranges from 30 to 80 MECU. Seven out of ten key project groupings are investment projects. The most significant of these in ascending order are investments in physical assets to: improve energy supply; improve waste management and water supply; and to reduce pollution.

A further review of the key project groupings in Figure 6 shows some variation in mean project size. In all but two, mean project size is less than 2 MECU and in five cases below 1 MECU. Only in the case of investment in physical assets for improving energy supply is the mean project size above 3 MECU. Figure 6: Average project size (MECU) within key project groupings

Table 4 presents the key project groupings by country in percentage terms. We have shaded those cells where expenditure in a given country appears to be unusually high. A review of Table 4 indicates the following: expenditure on institutional strengthening has been low in all countries with the exception of Slovakia where 15% of spending has been on institutional reform in support of pollution control; Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia appear to have prioritised expenditure on energy saving funds more than other countries; Estonia, Hungary and Lithuania have prioritised investments in improving waste management and water supply more than other countries; Hungary, Lithuania and Slovakia appear to have the most balanced programme, with expenditure in at least eight of the ten key project groupings; 10

Slovenia appears to have the most skewed programme with expenditure in only four out of ten key project groupings. Table 4: Percentage expenditure (%) by country and key project grouping

CONCLUSIONS The inventory and database which we have compiled provide evidence of the range and balance of Phare support to energy and environment. We have drawn a number of conclusions from analysis of the results of the inventory. Since 1990, the Phare energy and environment programme has provided support to about 800 projects with a total committed expenditure of about 570 MECU. Nearly two-thirds of projects are less than 0.5 MECU is size. Those of more than 1.0 MECU account for about two-thirds of total expenditure. Overall expenditure on the environment sector programme (60%) is significantly greater that the energy sector programme (40%). The evolution of the energy and environment programme shows early peaks in expenditure for both institutional and investment projects, dropping off during the middle years before rising again in the later years. Investments account for 60% of Phare expenditure on energy and environment, as opposed to 20% on institutional strengthening and 10% on other (principally strategic studies and support for PMUs). Projects providing support in the form of physical assets account for about 40% of total expenditure and tend to be the larger projects: 1.5 and 3.5 MECU, as opposed to less than 1.0 MECU for other types of output. Bulgaria, Poland and Hungary have each received more than double the expenditure of any other country. Most countries have spent significantly more on environment than on energy projects, though Bulgaria and Romania have spent more on energy, and Lithuania has spent roughly in equal proportions.

11

There are clear differences in the balance of programmes between countries. For example, Bulgaria and Romania have a high proportion of expenditure on investment in assets for energy supply; and the Czech and Slovak Republics have devoted a high proportion of expenditure to investment in pollution reduction and the establishment of energy savings funds. We have identified a total of ten key project groupings representing clusters of projects of similar output and objective. Of these ten the most significant (in terms of expenditure) are investment projects in physical assets addressing: (i) improving energy supply; (ii) improving waste management and water supply; and (iii) reducing pollution. Hungary, Lithuania and Slovakia appear to have the most balanced programmes with expenditure in at least eight of the ten key project groupings, while Slovenia has the most skewed programme with expenditure in only four out of ten.

1.4

IMPLICATIONS FOR PHASE 2 Within the context of this study, the inventory provides a basis against which to select an appropriate project sample for detailed evaluation. The results which we have outlined above have a number of implications for Phase 2. Given that total expenditure on the environment sector is significant greater than the energy sector, it is probable that our project sample should be weighted accordingly. The perception that the Phare programme has moved progressively from critical aid to institutional strengthening to investment is only partly reflected in expenditure allocations. The importance of investment throughout the period, and in terms of total expenditure, suggests that particular attention should be given to this in the evaluation. Given that 70% of total expenditure is accounted for by ten key project groupings, these groupings constitute an appropriate population from which to select our project sample. While there are clear differences between countries in the focus of the programme, the primary focus of evaluation will be the effectiveness and relevance of the Phare energy and environment programmes as a whole, rather than the performance of national project portfolios.

METHODS USED

2.1

OBJECTIVES OF THE INVENTORY The purpose of the inventory was to compile a comprehensive list of the outputs and objectives of environment and energy sector programmes in ten EU candidate member states, as a basis for the selection of a representative sample for evaluation during Phase 2, and to facilitate analysis of the range and balance of the programmes. In defining environment and energy, the scope of our search was limited to national programmes falling within the responsibility of energy and environment Project Management Units (PMUs) in each country, as well as multi-country programmes. Cross-border and horizontal programmes and excluded from the evaluation.

2.2

KEY ACTIVITIES From the start of the project in May, the inventory phase has progressed as follows: May: briefing with DG1A and desk research to compile draft inventory tables based on available Financial Memoranda, Work Programmes, OMAS reports and financial databases; June-July: brief inventory field visits to 10 candidate countries in order to validate inventory tables and assess information availability for Phase 2; August: classification of projects, development of project database, analysis of results, validation of preliminary conclusions with DG1A, and selection of sample for evaluation. The full inventory is voluminous. We have presented it as a separate document (Appendix A to the Inventory Report) also containing a full list of meetings held during the inventory phase and our questionnaire protocol using during interviews.

2.3 2.3.1

DATA COLLECTION Type of data From May to July we assimilated a large amount of data into country-specific tables describing all Phare energy and environment projects in 10 candidate countries, including two multi-country programmes. In compiling the inventory we collected the following data: the name, timing and budget for each Programme; a list of every project and sub-project carried out within each Programme; 13

the approximate duration of each project to indicate both the length and temporal position of the project within the study period (1990-1997); and financial data showing amount allocated, committed and disbursed as of May 1998. In addition, we collected information on the outputs of each project and subproject as a basis for (i) classifying according to output, and (ii) selecting a sample for detailed evaluation during Phase 2. 2.3.2 Data Gathering Process Having prepared draft inventory tables based on a review of project documents available from DG1A in Brussels, field teams (comprising one ERM specialist supported by a local specialist from ERM local offices and the Regional Environmental Centre) visited each candidate country. Country visits generally lasted three to five days depending on the size of the programme. The teams gathered data via one-to-one interviews and analysis of secondary data sources held in-country. Interviews We carried out interviews with PMUs or EU delegation staff using a questionnaire protocol developed by ERM (Appendix A to this report ), focusing on the following areas: validation of our draft inventory tables; the policy context to Phare energy and environment programmes including national policies and Phare funding policy in these sectors; the role of each institution within the project cycle and its relationship to other involved institutions; the type and level of data available for the evaluation stage. The information gathered during the meetings was generally sufficient, though information of disbursements and project duration were sometimes lacking. Lack of information occurred when we interviewed staff with limited or no first hand experience of a given project or programme. In such cases, it was important to review secondary sources. On completion of the country visits, we met all available task managers at DG1A in Brussels in order to validate and discuss our findings Secondary Sources We reviewed the main operational documents identified during discussions with key staff at DG1A, EU Delegations and the PMUs. The two principal documents were the Financial Memoranda and Work Programmes. While Financing Memoranda are a good first reference point, we found that they do not always contain sufficiently comprehensive and up-to-date project information to act as sole sources. Work Programmes, OMAS reports and sometimes project terms of reference were the most useful sources of secondary information to which we referred after the interview stage. 14

The PMUs were generally able to provide up-to-date print outs of financial information from the PERSEUS database. This data provides financial allocation, commitment and disbursement on a project by project basis. It also distinguishes between those contracts managed and funded directly from Brussels and those managed locally. 2.3.3 Data Verification and Synthesis We carried out an iterative process of speaking to PMU staff, reviewing work programmes and re-confirming our interpretation of project outputs and objectives. At the end of the visit, once the inventory tables were completed, we submitted draft tables to the PMU and EU delegation for review and approval. Completed inventory tables are presented in Annex A. We reviewed summary results of the inventory with selected task managers and the evaluation unit at DG1A, in order to obtain early feedback on the methods which we used and an interpretation of emerging trends.

2.4

CLASSIFICATION AND DATA MANAGEMENT We have classified projects according to output and objective, following logical framework terminology. This provides the basis of a matrix within which we can analyse patterns and ultimately select a sample of projects for evaluation. We have defined categories of output and objective in an attempt to reflect the guidance provided in our terms of reference and preliminary discussions/review from DG1A. The categories are as follows: Output Category Organisations Pricing Regulations Awareness Physical assets Demonstrations Investment funds Investment preparation Strategic studies Critical aid Multiple projects Unknown Objective category Energy savings Improved energy supply Reduced waste and water use Waste services and water supply Pollution reduction Biodiversity conservation Code (O) (P) (R) (A) (Y) (D) (F) (I) (S) (C) (Z) (?) Code (C) (S) (C) (S) (P) (B)

From the information contained in the inventory tables we have coded each project according to output and objective and entered these details into a database. In some cases, we found projects to have multiple outputs or 15

objectives. Occasionally we have had to post a ? in the database due to lack of information. We present a sample of the database below and a full print out in Annex A.

Having completed the database and generated Table 3 (see Section 1) we were able to define the most important project groupings based on total expenditure. We identified a total of 10 key project groupings which collectively represent the core of the programme, and a suitable population from which to select a sample of projects for evaluation. The key project groupings are presented in Figure 5 (see Section 1). Because all projects in any given cell share similar outputs and objectives, we can expect that they should lead to similar lessons about effectiveness, from which useful recommendations can be generated.

2.5

LIMITATIONS OF THE INVENTORY Inevitably the process described above is subject to certain limitations relating principally to quality of information and to a certain level of judgement/subjectivity that has been necessary. Classification of projects according to output and objective was carried out on the basis of an interpretation of information provided in the inventory tables. Much of the time this was relatively straightforward but occasionally judgement was required. In order to minimise randomness being introduced into the database in this way, classification was carried out by two members of the team only working closely together to ensure consistency in any judgement made. In a number of cases, projects clearly had multiple outputs or objectives. When one of these was clearly dominant, we classified the project according to the dominance output or objective. Otherwise, our approach was to assign the project to a multiple category by which it is effectively excluded from selection in the sample, (except in the case of strategies). In a number of cases, insufficient project level information was available either in Brussels or at the country level, particularly for projects during the early years of Phare. We have been obliged to classify these projects as unknowns. We found information on individual project duration to be very variable, particularly during the early years. This has limited our ability to provide an accurate temporal analysis of energy and environment programmes. As a proxy, we have used the programme date (ie. RO 9105). This will have the effect of producing a more theoretical distribution of projects against time, rather than one based on fact. 16

Companies and organisations can apply for a soft loan from this fund for investment in energy saving, consisting of a commercial loan from the bank complemented by a Phare interest free contribution

Implementation of the fund has had some delays, partly due to discussions held with EBRD to setup a joint fund. This idea was finally abandoned. A contract has been signed with a local Czech bank in April 97. A Monitoring Board has been established. Preliminary results indicate that the loans provided are not attractive

Amount Allocated (M ) Amount Committed (M ) Amount Disbursed (M )

(1) Original amount allocated to the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic was 30 M . The amount of 18.8 M

was the amount which was allocated to the Czech Republic after the division of the programme into two parts. The project commitments differ sometimes substantially from the original allocations as a reshuffle of budgets has taken place after the division of the programme in a Czech and a Slovak part. There is some confusion about the exact amount which has finally been allocated and exact figures are difficult to trace. There have e.g. been additional funds from interest, but there also has been some cash flow from the Phare PMU back to the EC in Brussels. A total amount of 18.3 M was found in the accounts of the PMU while the EC Delegation presented a figure of 20.0 M (2) Commitments differ for some projects substantially from the original allocation after the division of the programme into a Czech and a Slovak part. The project with code AIR/9, which is not presented in this table, disappeared completely from the list of projects.

(3) Figures are from 30 September 1997 (4) Remaining funds from the 1990 programme which could not be disbursed within the given time limit, were channelled into a bank fund together with remaining funds from
the 1991 programme. New projects to be financed from this fund were identified. Although the projects are here presented as projects under the 1990 programme, they are basically 1990/1991 projects. The indication in the table that the full amount is disbursed actually means that the full amount has been transferred to the bank. Most projects financed from this fund are in their final stages of completion. Actual figures on disbursement of funds per projects date from 15 June 1997.
