Addressing environmental concerns is one of the important priorities in Kosovo on its orientation towards European integration process. The Government of Kosovo has recently approved the National Strategy and Action Plan on Waste Management. These documents recognise that the pollution caused by improper waste management is one of the greatest environmental challenges in Kosovo. Several MuSPP3 partner municipalities have identified solid waste management as one of the most critical issues they are currently facing in the environmental field, and two municipalities have requested the Municipal Spatial Planning Support Programme (MuSPP) for specific guidance on this matter, namely by updating their Local Waste Management Plans in face of the recent National Strategy and Action Plan on Waste.
