Low environmental awareness, weak institutional capacities, bad practices and inadequate measures – all contributed to the environmental problems in North Macedonia. Despite the challenges, there are still ways in which the citizens can take action to help mitigate the effects of environmental corruption in Macedonia. By raising awareness of this issue and advocating for stronger regulations and enforcement measures, citizens can make a difference in their communities.
The Government must take more actions, such as suppressing illegal activities that contribute to air pollution or introducing stricter regulations for companies operating in North Macedonia. Only then will we be able to see real progress in reducing corruption and improving air quality in North Macedonia.
Overall, there is still much work to be done in North Macedonia to tackle air pollution and environmental issues, and this will require joint efforts by the Government, civil society, the private sector and all citizens.
