IWRM-Kosovo Program enters into implementation

After a highly productive Program inception phase of 1 year having seen intense expert analysis and participatory program design, the contract for the implementation phase 1 (May 2020-April 2024) of the IWRM-K was signed on April 30, 2020 by the SDC.

The aim of IWRM-K is to improve the capacity and strengthen the role of the newly established Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment, and especially the River Basin District Authority, as key institutions for river basin management. The Program is going to link technical capacity building and institutional development, whilst nurturing public awareness of environmental issues and enhancement of citizen engagement.

The project and it’s committed team are ready to reverse the dynamic and to have empowered people and strong municipalities!
