Environment & Energy

  • Restoring the Ecosystem of Lake Prespa is the latest project to support the sustainable development of this vulnerable region. It is expected that this project will bring many benefits for the local people and environment. And by reducing the pressures on the ecosystem, it will significantly improve the health and resilience of the Lake.

  • the main objective of this project is to help create the necessary conditions for municipalities to improve their use of energy resources.The project will achieve this objective by increasing the capacities of all municipalities to implement energy-efficiency measures and raising awareness of the benefits of better energy management.

  • With funding from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, UNDP will work with the Ministry of Environment and local municipalities to protect the Strumica River Basin through integrated management of water resources. The direct impact of the project will be to reduce the risk of floods and droughts, decrease pollution and restore the ecological functions of water bodies. Through these efforts, the project will improve the living conditions of the region’s population.

  • The goal of the project is to assist the country’s recovery efforts in the aftermath of the floods that occurred in early 2015 by reconstructing damaged transport infrastructure. The “building back better” approach will be used to maximize resilience to future floods and mitigate the risk of floods in priority sensitive regions of the country.

  • Funded by the EU, implemented by UNDP, this project will target damaged water infrastructure in six locations in the East, West, Southeast and Pelagonija regions, restoring regulated riverbeds and drainage systems in the Crna Reka and Strumica river basins and reconstructing and improving the management of the four priority dams of Mavrovica, Slatina, Drenska Reka and Lipa.

  • The European Union and the World Bank, together with the UN agencies in the country, have responded swiftly to the Government’s request for assistance in addressing the damage caused by the devastating floods that hit the country in 2016.
