Western Balkans Environmental Programme working on strengthening capacities in the Western Balkans countries to address environmental problems through remediation of high priority hot spots
UNDP Montenegro coordinaed implementation of a 3-year $15 million Western Balkans Environmental Hot Spots Programme www.westernbalkansenvironment.net, which was the biggest regional programme UNDP has committed to in the South Eastern Europe to date. The main goal of the Programme, funded by the Government of the Netherlands was to achieve improvement of environmental situation and quality of life for citizens through the least-cost measures, improved local and national policy dialogue and the supply of domestic professional services in the environmental management sector. While the main focus of the Programme was on the clean-up works needed to mitigate environmental and human health problems at eleven (11) selected locations, the institutional strengthening and capacity building were equally important components which the Programme worked on.
