  • Develop know-how on preparation of national enforcement strategies to combat environmental crime;
  • Develop tools for exchange of intelligence and operational information;
  • Identify training needs for police and other enforcement officers, develop tailored training materials and organise training courses, including common events for police, customs, national environmental inspectorates and other administrative and judicial authorities in the field of environment and the judiciary;
  • Establish structured mechanisms (e.g. networks) to enhance communication, coordination and cooperation between different enforcement and judicial authorities at national and EU level;
  • Enhance cooperation between enforcement agencies of Member States, as well as between these agencies and (i) relevant EU and international organisations and agencies, such as Europol, Eurojust, Interpol, World Customs Organisation, (ii) third countries and (iii) relevant actors from the private sector;
  • Develop expertise and a strategic analysis of the environmental crime phenomenon;
  • Gather statistics and intelligence on environmental crime for the purpose of threat and risk analysis;
