The challenges and prospects


Challenges are to be addressed by increasing the chances of professionals to meet internationally agreed qualification standards in environment protection by supporting knowledge gathering, assessing best practices and formulating steps for qualifications upgrade and understanding. 

New policies in qualifications recognition are still to be applied at national level, but they must be preceded by analysis of state-of-the-art and economic conditions. Moreover, institutions and national and private educational and labor organizations need tools to facilitate the process of qualifications recognition.
