News / The EU and Germany help improve waste management in Kosovo; invest additional EUR 49 million in the sector
The EU in Kosovo, in collaboration with the German Embassy, GIZ, Ministry of Environment, and the Association of Kosovo Municipalities, marked on 25 January the completion of a three-year-long project dedicated to the improvement of the solid-waste management in Kosovo and presented the newly launched activities in the sector.
The recently finalised project worth EUR 7 million was jointly funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and implemented by GIZ. It led to an increase in the collection of solid waste in all 38 Kosovo municipalities from 57.8 to 90.2 per cent, an extension of waste-collection and management service to additional 77,000 households, and the closure of more than 1,500 illegal dumpsites.
The EU and the German Government are continuing to support sustainable reforms in the waste management sector in Kosovo.
