Commission Staff Working Document: Guidelines for the Implementation of the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans

This Staff Working Document (SWD) outlines in more detail the actions related to the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans included in the Communication on an Economic and Investment Plan for the Western Balkans adopted by the European Commission. It further details the five pillars of the Green Agenda: (1) climate action, including decarbonisation, energy and mobility, (2) circular economy, addressing in particular waste, recycling, sustainable production and efficient use of resources, (3) biodiversity, aiming to protect and restore the natural wealth of the region, (4) fighting pollution of air, water and soil and (5)
sustainable food systems and rural areas. Digitalisation will be a key enabler for the above five pillars in line with the concept of the dual green and digital transition. The objectives of these pillars should be pursued through concrete actions and supported by mechanisms and financial instruments set out in the following sections.
