A consortium led by Eunomia has been awarded a major contract by DG Environment to advise on the quality of waste management and law, and on the pattern of its implementation, in the Western Balkans.
6 countries will be covered by the work: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Montenegro and Serbia. The work will also consider the potential for regional cooperation in respect of the management of waste electrical and electronic equipment.
Tim Elliott, Senior Consultant and project manager, commented:
“We’re extremely excited to have been appointed to do this work. We will be working with partners from other EU countries as well as local partners in the 6 countries to be covered by the work. The extent of the transformation required is likely to be considerable, and over the next 2 years, we’ll be looking to understand what approaches are most likely to work in the local context.”
For each country, following workshops to discuss draft proposals, a roadmap to improved waste management will be developed.
