  1. 1. 5. Related Programmes and Donor Activities Serbia, 17 October 2013 - The Ministry of Energy, Development and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Serbia and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) organised a National Training of Customs Officers and Environment Inspectors to control the hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) consumption in the Republic of Serbia from 14-16 October 2013. This meeting was organised in the framework of the project “HCFC phase-out management plan (Stage I) for Serbia” (HPMP Serbia) which had been approved at the 62nd Meeting of the Executive Committee of the Multilateral Fund. The goal of the project is to implement activities that will help the country to meet the compliance targets in 2013 (freeze), 2015 (10% reduction) and 2020 (35 %) reduction of HCFC consumption. The project is being implemented jointly by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and UNEP. One of the important components of the HPMP Serbia is the national training of Customs officers and environment inspectors implemented by UNEP. Enforcement officers play a key role in prevention and monitoring of trade in ODSs and ODSs containing equipment in the country. Serbia is currently failing to achieve compliance with the main pollution control requirements specified in the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD 91/271/EC), the Industrial Emission Directive ( IED) Directive and the Nitrates Directive.
  2. 2. Statistical Office data indicates that of 2.5 million household in Serbia, 1.3 million are connected to public sewage; Of the 365 million m3 of wastewater discharged in 2009 only 51 million m3 were treated 9mostly only to primary standards). Reasonable compliance is achieved with the requirements of the Drinking Water Directive (98/83/EC) in many areas but a serious problem rises in the AP of Vojvodina with arsenic contamination. There are ‘affordability constraints’ in respect to the last 2 items in the form of limits to public sector spending and to the proportion of income that citizens can reasonably be expected to spend on utility services including water. The future of these constraints is highly dependent on the economic development of the country. An outline financing strategy for the sector has been derived using the approach in chapter…. The starting point for the strategy entailed estimation of capital Investment needs, estimated by considering the ‘gap’ between the current state of infrastructure provision and a future fully compliant stat is estimated at 1.3 billion Euro for drinking water 3.3 billion for waste water
  3. 3. 0.9 billion for reduction of water pollution by agriculture. The sequence for waste water collection and treatment entails investment program commitments to the end of 2030. This implies large funding needs which cannot be covered by affordable user charges until 2024. This means that Serbia would seek to for derogation The sequence will entail the establishment of staged transitional periods in respect of the UWWTD within the final stage ending in the period 2030-2033. EC An Action Plan for the development and implementation of a Water Management Information System and associated Decision Support Systems has been finalized and approved by the DW along with the Water Management Information System Investment Costs Plan and Staffing Plan Since 2005, more than 20 projects with a total value of over 68 million Euros have been implemented. MISP (Municipal Infrastructure Support Programme), financed by EU and managed by the Delegation of the European Union to the
  4. 4. Republic of Serbia, assists municipalities in Serbia in the preparation of project documentation and implementation of municipal infrastructure projects. The main goal of MISP is the improvement of the infrastructure services management in municipalities and to increase investment in the infrastructure, in order to meet EU standards on environmental protection and sustainable economic development. MISP is also assisting municipalities and PUC’s throughout the complete process of infrastructure projects realization – from funding application, feasibility studies (SLAP Information System), budget management to projects implementation. SLAP Information System - municipal infrastructure database SLAP IS is the first and unique online database of public municipal investment projects. The system has now been in existence for about 6 years and during 2009 it was opened to users for uploading projects and for downloading information about the projects. It is gradually being adopted by many municipalities and cities for registering their projects. SLAP is managed by the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities, with the main objective to provide adequate and efficient support to municipalities and cities in Serbia to plan and identify infrastructural projects and apply for financial support necessary for Feasibility studies preparation and projects implementation. SLAP was developed in cooperation between Municipal Infrastructure Support Programme and Exchange 3 programs (EU funded programmes managed by the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia , with the continues support of the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities and respective line ministries .
  5. 5. EPTISA, a Spanish engineering consultant leading a consortium with two other international consultants: ROYAL HASKONING/DHV (NL) and VNG (NL), has been appointed for implementation of the MISP project Municipalities will benefit from having better quality of services in: • Water supply, waste water, solid waste management and district heating, • Sheltered housing, facilities for the disabled and education facilities, • Tourist sites, urban renewal and industrial parks. In order to help municipalities to recognize and document their infrastructure projects, MISP Programme has developed SLAP Information System (www.slap.skgo.org) – data base that is managed by the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities. In addition to assisting them to identify and prepare projects, SLAP system enables municipalities to ask for financial assistance from different international
  6. 6. and national financial sources for the development of the Feasibility studies and implementation. The core element of the SLAP Information System is the so-called PPD (Project Profile Document) representing a municipal infrastructure project that each municipality can fill in online and upload to the SLAP data base to seek financial support for development and implementation. The PPD gives an overview of the main characteristic and beneficiaries of the project, it’s embedding the national or local development strategies and its level of development as well as the maturity and completeness of the underlying technical and financial feasibility studies. The information contained in the PPD of the project can be updated at convenience as the project development progress and when new more detailed in formation becomes available. The project contained in the SLAP IS represent an evolving series of projects at various stage of preparation and development that feeds the data base of projects considered for funding by international (EU, EBRD, EIB, KfW, etc..) and national funding institutions (NIP, Environmental Protection Fund, etc..). Under SLAP Information System three types of municipal infrastructure projects can be promoted for financial support. These are projects related to economic infrastructure, environmental infrastructure and social infrastructure. MISP (Municipal Infrastructure Support Programme), financed by EU, managed by the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia, assists
  7. 7. municipalities in Serbia in preparation of Project documentation and implementation of the municipal infrastructure projects. MISP is focused on supporting projects in water management, waste water management, solid waste management, district heating, homes and shelters, education facilities, facilities for disabled, tourist locations, reconstruction of the cities and industrial parks. Since 2005, more than 20 projects, of the total value of over 68 million euro, have been implemented. The main goal of the Progamme is improvement of the infrastructure services management in municipalities and more intensive investment in the infrastructure in order to meet EU standards in relation to environmental protection, sustainable economic development and to provide funds for social needs. MISP is also assisting municipalities and PUC’s throughout the complete process of infrastructure projects realization - from application, Feasibility studies, budget management and advising on projects implementation. EPTISA, Spanish engineering company, which chairs the consortium of two more foreign companies: Royal Haskoning/DHV (NL) and VNG (NL), is in charge of MISP project realization.

Total value of the waste water treatment an sewage collection project 9the Great Backa Canal Project) is 23.600.000 ZZueuro Total value of the Waste Water Treatment and Sewage Collection Project Vrbas/Kula (the Great Bačka Canal Project) is EUR 23,600,000, where the construction of sewerage in 5 villages (Bačko Dobro Polje, Zmajevo, Ravno Selo, Kucura and Savino Selo) is funded by NIP (EUR 4,000,000), Vojvodina
  10. 10. Capital Investments Fund (RSD 350,000,000) and the Municipality of Vrbas (EUR 1,400,000). The construction of the pipeline header has been funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands through UNDP programme (EUR 1,200,000) and Serbia’s Eco Fund (EUR 1,900,000), while the Waste Water Treatment Plant is funded by the EU, through IPA 2008 (EUR 9.565.083 EUR). The last stage of the Great Bačka Canal Project is the desludging and remediation phase of the 6 kilometres of the Great Bačka Canal which run through pollution of the Great Bačka Canal, from which the water flows into Tisa and on to the Danube, is considered one of the biggest environmental problems in Serbia. The municipalities of Vrbas and Kula are actively investing in the sewerage system in order to reduce the effects of pollution of the Great Bačka Canal. The pollution is largely caused by the discharge of untreated industrial and utility waste water. The overall objective is to protect and improve the quality of water in the Great Bačka Canal and to improve sanitary conditions in the municipalities of Vrbas and Kula. - See more at: This project will enable waste water treatment and discharge for 120,000 equivalent inhabitants in the municipalities of Vrbas and Kula, it will collect and treat industrial waste water which has been pre-treated (in case of identified large industrial facilities in Vrbas which currently discharge untreated waste water and pollute the Great Canal), expand the sewerage system to additional 20,000 inhabitants, institutions and small industrial and business facilities in the villages of Vrbas municipality, significantly improve environmental situation by indirect impact – through improved sanitary protection and reduced risk for public health; it will greatly improve water quality in the extremely endangered tributaries of the Danube and the Great Bačka Canal, and, ultimately, eliminate serious
  11. 11. limitations for the development of industry, agriculture, water transport and tourism, caused by the pollution. - See more tted to the water sector in Serbia: • 45 M € for projects in:Sombor, Loznica, Sremska Mitrovica, Sabac, Pancevo, Smederevo, and Kraljevo (ongoing); • 30 M € for projects in: Trstenik, Aleksinac, Jagodina, Pirot, Vranje, Leskovac (in preparation); and, • 30.5 M € for financing water (16.8 M €) and wastewater (11.2 M €) infrastructure through Serbian banks with technical assistance of municipalities through the SCTM (2.5 M €).
