19.12.2014

The Final conference for CAMP Montenegro (and the ICZM Strategy for Montenegro) was a successful event that took place on December 18 in Budva. It was attended by over 80 participants including representatives of national administration and expert institutions, local institutions, as well as UNEP/MAP and its RACs.

At this high level meeting, Mr. Gvozdenoviæ, Minister of Sustainable Development and Tourism, pointed out that the implementation of the CAMP Montenegro improved the national policy for sustainable development, urban planning and environmental protection, and provided a significant contribution to the strengthening of the capacity for implementation of international (including EU) policies and regulations. Mr. Leone, UNEP/MAP Co-ordinator, thanked the Government of Montenegro for the support provided and significant efforts engaged in implementation of this important project. He also expressed particular satisfaction with the fact that Montenegro follows the path of sustainable development.

It was agreed that, in the framework of the CAMP Montenegro, an extraordinary work has been done that helped understand transformation processes and prioritise pressures in the coastal areas. The results will be aimed at controlling and reducing pressures on coastal environment, mainly through the implementation of the National ICZM Strategy as well as the Coastal Area Spatial Plan that shall soon be adopted by the Government.The Final CAMP Conference marked the end of the extraordinary project experience. But the results achieved are not an end in itself but rather they present the way forward in the coming period.UNEP/MAP would like to thank all the national institutions and experts that contributed to the successful realisation of the CAMP project and in particular the General Co-ordinator, Ms. Jelena Kneževiæ.
