June 2022

Being a post-war country with a fragile economy, the Government of Kosovo with the support of the international community aims to develop the economy through direct investment and/or improving the investment climate. As a transition economy, the energy sector needs serious and substantial reforms.

This policy goal for the energy sector has been a sustainable, clean, and secure energy supply that will support the developing economy and increase social welfare.

This report will analyze the actors, legislation in force, strategic documents, current obstacles and identify areas for improvement of the Energy Sector in Kosovo during the implementation of the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans (GAWB).

Green groups and their role in the parliament’s green agenda

Thus, more and more people are supporting green policies, but who are the Greens, and what do they represent
in today’s politics? This Policy Brief aims to explain what the purpose of these green groups is and their role in the parliament's green agenda.
