“Joint Transition for the Coal Mining Regions in Poland and Bulgaria” Project Begins

Bulgaria and Poland will jointly move towards the transition from coal energy to the achievement of zero carbon emissions. The two countries will work together for the purpose of a project in which the Bulgarian partner is the German-Bulgarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

In this year, the German-Bulgarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce became a partner of the “Joint Transition for the Coal Mining Regions in Poland and Bulgaria” project. The project will be implemented with the support of key stakeholders in the Polish and Bulgarian coal regions for the transition to zero carbon emissions, engaging them in the creation of region-specific employment strategies.

The municipalities of Stara Zagora, Pernik, Kyustendil and Bobov dol, where the threat of structural unemployment is greatest, will be included in the initiative.

It is planned to develop joint strategies for creating new jobs and optimizing the existing ones and protecting them at the regional, national and European level.

The final versions of the strategic documents will make it possible to apply for funding from the European Union.

The project is part of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs’ European Climate Protection Initiative, created in response to the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.
