Call for Three Regional Experts

22 Nov 2022 Calls
Western Balkans Info Hub Policy Answers

The POLICY ANSWERS project has opened a call for three regional experts.

The project aims to provide comprehensive profiles of the Western Balkan economies (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia).

The profiles will indicate the current situation and policy recommendations for decision-makers in the region. They will address the Green Deal and the implementation of the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans. The green transition is a key to ensuring a sustainable economy and environment in the region.

A special reference should be the five main pillars defined in the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans (Work Package 4 of the project, Tasks 4.2).

Three experts are contracted to support this work.
