"The Northern Dimension Environmental Partnership (NDEP), was created in March 2001 by the IFIs active in the Northern Dimension Area: European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Nordic Investment Bank (NIB), Nordic Environmental Finance Corporation (NEFCO), European Investment Bank (EIB) and World Bank. EIB joined the NDEP, when their mandate was extended to environmental loans in Russia. The NDEP’s main objectives are to promote and finance environmental investments and projects for the management of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and radioactive waste. The main environmental threats concern the Baltic and the Barents Sea, the quality of drinking water, air pollution and radioactive waste. The initial focus of the NDEP action will concentrate on municipal services concerning water, sewage, district heating and waste management." /.../
