The Fifth Edition of the IED Serbia project newsletter released

The New Year edition of the IED newsletter features stories about significant achievements made in the last quarter of the previous year. In the fifth edition, we present news about outstanding collaborations, significant interviews, and proactive initiatives that marked the end of the year.

The cooperation with students certainly marked the last months of the previous year. In addition to supporting the student competition “Tech Case Study,” the project actively participated in the implementation of training in environmental protection legislation for students. This training was organised in accordance with the Cooperation Agreement signed between the Ministry of Environmental Protection of the Republic of Serbia and the Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy, University of Belgrade.

This issue also includes an interview with Mr Paul Collins, the First Secretary and Programme Manager for Environment at the Embassy of Sweden in Belgrade. He shared insights into his work in Serbia and experiences gained in the implementation of initiatives and partnerships within the Swedish-Serbian cooperation in the field of environmental protection and climate change.

The IED Serbia project provided support and participated in the implementation of sectoral workshops organised by the Ministry of Environmental Protection with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Serbia through the project “EU for Green Agenda in Serbia.” These workshops aimed to build and strengthen capacities for issuing integrated permits and identify potential obstacles and challenges in the issuance process. Workshops were dedicated to competent authorities responsible for issuing integrated permits and operators from various industrial sectors covered by the Industrial Emissions Directive and took place from August to November of the previous year.

We remind you that the interactive bilingual newsletter is released quarterly and is distributed via email and the project’s website. The newsletter contains clickable images and texts that open additional digital content, including articles, videos, photo galleries, publications, and other content published through the project’s communication channels in the past period.
