United Against Pollution – UAP

About the project

Pollution represents one of the biggest threats of today, both for the environment and human health. It affects everyone and that is why it is important to take actions to reduce it.

This project was designed to support and empower communities and municipalities to become more engaged in environmental protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation, risk prevention and waste management. It targeted Municipalities Petnjica in Montenegro and Djakovica in Kosovo*.

The UAP project helped raise public awareness and exchange of good practices and know-how among communities and local authorities in these municipalities to combat illegal landfills by introducing environmentally-friendly concepts and expanding green space. Residents got an increased understanding of the risk of illegal waste, how to participate in the local waste collection system and how to report violators. Also, within the project were supported an infrastructure improvements at waste transfer stations and improved training and safety precautions for employees, including the sharing of best practices. In short, the UAP project contributed to establishing healthier environment and sustainable development in municipalities Petnjica (Montenegro) and Djakovica (Kosovo).
