With the last training having been delivered last week in Montenegro, the SPIDER WEB project has reached another important milestone. All 6 trainings have now been held in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia, Kosovo*, Montenegro and Serbia. Main focus was on waste crime and nature protection.
As an important deliverable of the SPIDER WEB project, an online training manual will be launched during the SPIDER WEB Conference which will take place on 12 and 13 November 2019 in Zagreb, Croatia. All tools, best practices and other relevant information will be disseminated, not only to the participating Western Balkan economies, but will also be made available to IMPEL members.
The SPIDER WEB project is coordinated by IMPEL under the supervision of IMPEL Board Member Simonne Rufener and IMPEL Project Manager Nancy Isarin.

SPIDER WEB stands for Strategic Project to Increase the Detection and Disruption of Environmental Crime in the Western Balkans. The general objective of SPIDER WEB is to increase the awareness and the skillset of all actors in the environmental law enforcement chain to successfully disrupt and prosecute illegal behaviour and limit the negative impact on human health and environment of this behaviour.
SPIDER WEB is jointly financed by the European Union and the Federal Republic of Germany on the basis of a grant agreement with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GmbH) within the IPA/2017 Countering Serious Crime in the Western Balkans Project.
