News / EU launches the secretariat of a new initiative for coal regions in transition
The European Commission has launched the secretariat of a new initiative to help coal regions in the Western Balkans and Ukraine transition away from coal towards a carbon-neutral economy.
Mirroring the successful EU Initiative for coal regions in transition, the newly established secretariat will deliver support to coal regions in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Ukraine. The secretariat will provide direct support for implementing the initiative and ensure collaboration across the diversity of institutions and actors involved.
The Initiative for coal regions in transition in the Western Balkans and Ukraine was launched in December 2020.
