Montenegro is a geographically small economy, but with a diverse landscape of high mountain ranges and a 300 km coastline. Following the 1991 Zabljak Parliamentary Declaration, the 1992 Constitution of Montenegro defined it as an ecological state.

EU accession negotiations with Montenegro were opened in June 2012. The Green Agenda and Sustainable connectivity cluster has significant links to Montenegro’s Economic Reform Programme and its strategic priorities in the area of environment. On its EU and Green Agenda path, and in line with its status of an ecological state, Montenegro is focused on a number of important reforms related to waste management, review and implementation of the transport development strategy, water quality, nature protection and climate change.
