Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment, Spatial Planning and Infrastructure, and the Association of Kosovo Municipalities, the European Union’s Office in Kosovo has assessed the completion of a three-year project dedicated to improving solid waste management.
The recently completed €7 million project was co-financed by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and implemented by GIZ. As a result of this project, an increase in solid waste collection from 57.8 percent to 90.2 percent was achieved in all 38 municipalities of Kosovo, expansion of waste collection and management services to an additional 77,000 households, and the closure of more than 1,500 landfills.
With new projects worth €49 million, the EU and Germany will help Kosovo align its waste management legal framework with EU legislation and support the implementation of the new waste law and Kosovo’s integrated waste management strategy.
Johannes Madsen, Head of EU Cooperation in Kosovo, emphasized that the EU and the German government continue to support sustainable reforms in the waste management sector in Kosovo.
