The German international development agency (GIZ) has awarded a contract to Landbell Group and Black Forest Solutions to advise on the development of a tailormade deposit refund system (DRS) for beverage containers in Kosovo.
The project will support the Kosovan Ministry of Economy and Environment in its efforts to implement extended producer responsibility and guide Kosovo along the circular economy path.
The project consultants will review existing pre-design studies, legislation and market overviews, develop the capacity of local stakeholders, and conduct onsite meetings. They will also propose a governance structure needed to steer and implement the DRS and support the public consultation and political decision-making process required to set up the institutional framework.
The project was launched in early December and will continue throughout 2021.
