Montenegro closes gaps in chemicals and waste management
Nestled along the Adriatic Sea, Montenegro is a country rich with rugged mountains, glacial lakes and beautiful limestone peaks. Although these fruitful ecosystems have been around for millennia, they are continuously exposed to external threats, including chemical and waste pollution, which threaten both environmental integrity and human health.
To address this issue, align itself with European Union regulations and achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, Montenegro is now adding a new commitment to its list of chemicals and waste management initiatives. In partnership with the Chemicals and Waste Management Programme of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the government is promoting sound management through a new project that will strengthen implementation of several key international treaties on chemicals and waste.CONTINUE READING ON: www.unep.org
