The forthcoming eastward enlargement of the European Union (EU) will fundamentally change the priorities of environmental policy and environmental pressures within the entire area. Regarding the need for environmental and political action in shaping the enlargement, there is a deficiency of political strategies within the environmental field to adequately cope with the various dimensions of this change. The goal of this paper is to discuss three central environmental sector problems related to the easterly enlargement: (1) institutional capacities of the accession states to deal with the enlargement, (2) potential environmental risks from adopting the Common Agricultural Policy in accession countries, and (3) the developmental differences in rural areas in the accession countries.
