Sida Review 2010:18 / This review covers the Swedish EPA’s cooperation with environmental authorities in two countries in the Western Balkans; Albania and Serbia. The cooperation is stated to have been relevant in relation to the needs of the target groups, the national policies and strategies as well as to other donor interventions in both countries. The projects’ importance for the development of environmental management capacity in the targeted countries varies considerably. Institutionalisation of project capacity development is not given sufficient attention by the parties. The projects in Serbia and Albania include limited efforts to institutionalise the outputs and outcomes of the projects.pages:44
