The online workshop will cover 3 Beneficiaries: Albania, Kosovo and North Macedonia. The aim of the event is to share policy measures and practical initiatives from the EU and from its Member States for the development of a sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient, and competitive economy in the frame of the EU Green Deal. The specific objectives of the workshop include:
- explaining the circular economy (CE) concept,
- presenting the latest European Commission initiatives in this area;
- presenting best practices from EU MS and from the Beneficiaries, in two priority sectors: plastics and plastic waste management as well as the construction and demolition sector.
The workshop will also be an occasion to discuss the opportunities and challenges for transition towards circular economy in the Beneficiaries.
The previous EPPA workshops on circular economy have covered Turkey (November 2020) and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia (May 2021).
