Restoration of Lake Prespa Ecosystem (Implementation of the Watershed Management Plan) Macedonia
As a continuation of the support to the Macedonian water and nature sector, Switzerland developed a group of projects that will assist the country to have cleaner water and a healthier environment. This project will improve the quality of the water and aquatic life in Lake Prespa and will help the municipality of Resen and the Ministry of Environment to learn how to manage water resources in a state-of-the-art manner.
The new Water Law imposes fulfilling EU directives requirements, including integrated water resources management and implementation of Water Management Plans. The lack of resources (financial, human, technical) at central and local level slows down the enforcement of the Water Law.
Contribution to the improvement of Prespa Lake’s ecological state and resilience.
