The topic of my doctoral dissertation is "Effectiveness of implementing the environmental protection policy on the example of selected local government units in Poland"
I am a PhD student in the discipline of politics and administration. My research interests are focused on public policy, in particular environmental policy.
The current state of knowledge on environmental protection by local government includes shaping the environment and managing environmental resources in accordance with the principle of sustainable development, as well as preventing pollution and restoring natural elements to the proper condition. The research gap in this area is the effectiveness of the implementation of the environmental protection policy of local government in Poland and its assessment by the inhabitants.
The originality of the research consists in measuring and comparing the effectiveness of implementing the environmental protection policy on the example of selected local governments, and examining the residents assessment of the quality of life in selected cities related to the condition and protection of the environment.
The research problem of the doctoral dissertation is the effectiveness of the implementation of the environmental protection policy in local government. The aim of the study is to diagnose problems related to environmental protection, to present action programs in the field of environmental protection of selected municipalities and the effectiveness of their implementation. The main research task is to determine the effectiveness of activities of public authorities in selected municipalities, undertaken in order to implement the environmental protection policy and improve its condition as well as the prospects, directions and needs of environmental protection in selected cities.
The research has been undertaken due to the present climate crisis and the lack of research on environmental protection by the local government in Poland. The research will provide science, local governments and the public with knowledge about the effectiveness of environmental policy implementation and its evaluation by residents. This will have an impact on the environmental awareness of public authorities and local communities. The research will also indicate the strengths and weaknesses of local government activities in the field of environmental protection.
