Developing CDM Projects in the Western Balkans: Legal and Technical Issues Compared

By Massimiliano Montini

Developing CDM Projects in the Western Balkans: Legal and Technical Issues Compared  represents  an  interesting  contribution  to  the  current  fundamental  worldwide debate  on  climate  change  and  provides  a  valuable  legal,  scientific  and  technical perspective,  lighting  some  shades  on  the  interaction  and  the  possible  integration between the several challenging issues related to the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol and of the CDM.

This  publication  arises  from  the  experience  of  the  international  cooperation programme  of  the  Italian  Ministry  for  the  Environment  Land  and  Sea  with  the Western Balkan Countries, performed with the legal assistance of the University of Siena – Environmental Legal Team, as a part of the broader technical support of a dedicated Task Force for Central and Eastern Europe.

In this framework, Developing CDM Projects in the Western Balkans: Legal and Technical Issues Compared analyses the most relevant legal and technical issues related  to  the  establishment  of  the  institutional,  regulatory  and  legislative  frame-work for CDM scouting, assessment and concrete realisation.

Therefore,  the  scientific  analysis  provided  by  the  publication  is  enriched  and deepened by the concrete experience gained by the legal and technical experts, and presents the ratio of the political, institutional and regulatory choices made by the Western Balkan countries as well as the achievements of the Italian bilateral coop-eration programme. At the same time, it points out the ongoing unresolved contro-versial aspects and the outstanding challenges characterising the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol in Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.
