Regional Research on Waste Management Economic Instruments Implemented in South Eastern European (SEE) Countries
SEE countries, namely Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Greece, Ukraine and Serbia, face common challenges on solid waste management. Local governments are struggling to cope with the growing volumes of waste; basic waste service provision is mostly concentrated in urban areas, and illegal dumpsites are a frequent sight, especially in rural areas. Within this project’s framework, research on waste management economic instruments, institutional and financial analysis of the waste sector in SEE was conducted. Additionally, the identification and analysis of existing instruments in SEE, and provision of best practices for the purpose of replication was also achieved.
