The multidisciplinary team of both international and national experts fully engaged their expertise and efforts to strengthen institutional capacity of the environmental authorities and to ensure grounds for effective planning of environmentally sustainable economic development. The Project Team assisted the Montenegrin authorities, in particular the key beneficiary, Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Protection, inmonitoring, reporting, permitting, inspection and enforcement activities, as

Two significant deliverables of the EPTISA Project Team were establishment ofNational Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and establishment of a fully operational centralised Project Implementation Unit (PIU). The PIU will act as coordinator of environmental infrastructure rehabilitation and expansion programmes, which are considered vital for growing Montenegrin tourism industry.
