Europe’s environment and ecosystems are under increasing pressure. Climate change, biodiversity loss, intensive agriculture, and exploitation of forests and marine resources, threaten not only our natural resources but also our quality of life, prosperity and well-being.
The Western Balkans are no exception. Although blessed with pristine landscapes and natural wealth, pollution is high and the region is projected to be severely hit by climate change.
In line with the European Green Deal, protecting the environment and tackling climate change are at the heart of the EU’s support and investment, and the new EU Green Agenda for the Western Balkans.
Climate change is the defining crisis of our time. With the new Green Agenda, the EU has placed climate action front and centre of support to the Western Balkans.
Environmental challenges know no borders. Protecting the environment is at the heart of EU support in the Western Balkans. The goal? A greener future for all!
