Milieukontakt Oost-Europa is an independent foundation from the Netherlands that was established in 1988. The objective of Milieukontakt Oost-Europa is to strengthen environmental NGOs in Central and Eastern Europe and the Newly Independent States (CEE/NIS) to enable them to influence environmental policy and environmental behaviour in their societies. Milieukontakt pursues this aim by giving support and advice, and by encouraging and establishing co-operation between environmental organisations in the Netherlands and in CEE/NIS countries.
