Establishment of the Coalition 27 in Kosovo

WWF Adria and six other organizations are the members of the Coalition

For the first time, we have taken the initiative to establish a Coalition 27 group in Kosovo, together with several CSOs, such as the Institute for Development Policy (INDEP), the Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS), CNVP Foundation, Sustainability Leadership Kosovo (SLK), and Active Citizens to engage regarding the chapter 27 of EU acquis - Climate Change and Environment.

Chapter 27 - Environment and climate change, as one of the chapters/standards to be met, covers EU environmental policies which aim to promote sustainable development and environmental protection for present and future generations.

Kosovo, like other Western Balkan countries aiming to become members of the EU, is obliged to meet the standards required by the European Commission. Through the Stabilization and Association Agreement, it will engage in the implementation of all reforms that will progressively align Kosovo with the EU in all policy areas, until it meets all EU standards.

EU environment policy aims to promote sustainable development and protect the environment for present and future generations. It is based on preventive action, the polluter pays principle, fighting environmental damage at the source, shared responsibility, and the integration of environmental protection into other EU policies. The acquis comprises over 200 major legal acts covering horizontal legislation, water, and air quality, waste management, nature protection, industrial pollution control, and risk management, chemicals and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), noise, and forestry.

Implementation of these standards requires dedicated commitment of central and local institutions, civil society organizations, etc. Therefore, the establishment of this group will assist Kosovo in meeting the standards required by the EU.
