In the context of the project “Addressing the risks of forest fires in South Eastern Europe”, implemented in the framework of the Environment and Security Initiative (ENVSEC) in synergy with the Themis Network, six country studies were carried out on forest fire risks and the policy and institutional responses currently in place in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. In order to highlight the regional dimension of forest fires, the project also produced a regional report that provides a comparative summary of the findings of each country report and proposes recommendations for future improvements in the SEE region.
The project was implemented by the REC’s Law Development, Enforcement and Compliance Topic Area with funding from the Austrian Development Cooperation.
* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
