The project supports the six cooperating countries of the Western Balkans seeking to further integrate in the Eionet network. This includes support in full implementation of Eionet modernisation requirements, expansion of national capacities for reporting and in thematic areas relevant to the implementation of the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans.

Aims and objectives

The main objective of the project is to continue supporting the Western Balkan partners in the approximation process with a view to “technical readiness” for EEA membership. This includes capacity building support in areas relevant to the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans' implementation, supporting the Eionet modernisation implementation as well as technical support for the reporting requirements.

Thematic areas that will be addressed within this project are: Zero Pollution (Air, Water, Soil), Biodiversity and Circular Economy. The partners of the project are national Eionet networks in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia, coordinated by National Focal Points (NFP) who are, when applicable, representatives of a national Environment Protection Agency.
