About this book


Developing CDM Projects in the Western Balkans: Legal and Technical Issues Compared, arises from the professional practical experience gained by an interdisciplinary team of legal and technical experts acting in the framework of the environmental bilateral cooperation performed by the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea in the Western Balkan countries, through the "Task Force for Central and Eastern Europe".

The volume is edited by Professor Massimiliano Montini, Director of the Environmental Legal Team (ELT) of the University of Siena, a group of young environmental lawyers and economists, in charge of providing the legal assistance for the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol (KP), as well as for paving the way for the development of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects in the Western Balkan countries.

The added value of the book consists in the fact that it  presents the real professional experience gained by a multi-sectoral team of lawyers, economists, engineers and other technical experts, working in synergy with a shared vision.

This volume will be useful not only to those specifically interested in the Western Balkan area, but represents a broader example of lessons learned in the development of CDM projects. Therefore, it may have a broad market among Government officials and legal-economic-technical professionals dealing with climate change issues as well as academics developing scientific research in this field.
