The Make it Work Project is an initiative by The Netherlands (Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment), the UK (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) and Germany (Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety).
Make it Work is the project that aims to establish a more coherent and consistent framework for the EU
environmental acquis through developing drafting principles on the use of cross-cutting instruments and procedures in EU environmental directives and regulations. To achieve that, a forum for discussing broader, strategic approaches to smarter EU environmental law has been established. In this forum a coalition of the Member States together with the European Commission conduct a dialogue about the modernisation of the EU environmental legislation and exchange the best practices about their national legislation.
MiW aims at delivering environmental outcomes more efficiently and effectively, without lowering existing protection standards. Principles drawn up will ensure the protection of the environment.
