USAID Macedonia said its Clean Energy Investment (CEI) project currently develops an action plan for sustainable development (APSD) in collaboration with United Nations Development Programme and the cabinet of deputy prime minister for economic affairs. The organization is working towards improving the knowledge and building the capacities of the institutions of the Government of Macedonia for low emissions development and sustainable development.

APSD is intended to frame all measures and activities that need to be implemented with respect to sustainable development (SD) over the next 3 years and improve planning of the national resources in sustainable manner, USAID said. A set of workshops was organised in December  and April for relevant institutions, academia, NGOs and members of the technical working group of the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD) to contribute their input, comments and suggestions. It is expected the draft APSD to be finalized, presented to the NCSD, and subsequently adopted by the government by September, the statement said.
