 The PUMP (Pour Un Monténégro Propre) project aims to combat pollution in Montenegro through strengthening the CleanUp Montenegro network, formalizing agreements among participants, conducting advocacy campaigns, establishing coordination structures, and addressing waste management issues. Dialogues between civil society and authorities will promote territorial accountability, improve waste management practices, encourage better public waste management, particularly within institutions, and seek solutions for waste in biodiversity areas. Additionally, two calls for micro-projects will support environmental initiatives by Montenegrin CSOs, focusing on gender equality, youth awareness, and marginalized populations, with funding allocated to pilot projects to seek co-funding for more permanent solutions.
