Kosovo under UNSCR 1244 - February 2010

The Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning of Kosovo (under UNSCR 1244), in cooperation with the ECENA Secretariat, organised the first ECENA national training to take place in the local language. The main goal of the event was to transfer lessons learnt and all the experience gained at ECENA regional trainings to a large number of inspectors and permit writers. The agenda focused on RMCEI (2001/331/EC), planning  and frequency of inspections, the use of checklists, the waste incineration directive, the new framework waste and air directives, and obstacles to the prosecution of environmental crimes.

The event took place in Pristina, on February 2-3, 2010. 40 inspectors and permit writers attended the training.
