Project background

The Project “Small Pond of OHIS Industrial Site Clean-up” is designed to support remediation of the most critical environmental hotspot in the Republic of North Macedonia - the industrial pollution at the site of the former Organic Chemical Industry of Skopje. The European Union (EU) provides 2.5 million Euros through the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) III to fund the Project.

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the improvement of the environmental standards in North Macedonia through enhanced application of environmental policies in remediation of industrial hot-spots, and by decreasing the pollution-related risks to the environment and human health. The main environmental benefit from the project is the mitigation of risks associated with the release of hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) into the environment and their subsequent distribution with resultant ecological and human health impacts from exposure to these chemicals.
