Abstract
Troyan, a Bulgarian community of 46000 people had severe environmental problems that compromised its natural beauty and economic prosperity. Poor solid waste management and inadequate sewage treatment were polluting local water sources and causing health problems: combustion of high-sulfur coal and oil for home heating and industrial processes was polluting the air. The municipality wanted to improve environmental conditions but had littel experience in environmental management.The Troyan Environmental Action Project was a demonstration project aimed to improve the environmental management capacity of the municipality by introducing a risk-based planning model that integrated comparative risk assessment with participatory decision-making methods.
