Biodiversity and protected areas in Macedonia
Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
A map of Macedonia showing all the protected areas, national parks natural reserves. The industry sector is the main polluter in Macedonia. The primary reasons for industrial pollution are the old, inefficient
technologies, inadequate control of waste, and insufficient equipment for environment protection. The most serious problems in the country are the quality of
air in Veles, Bitola, and Skopje; the pollution of surface waters (as a result of discharging untreated waste waters), and the inadequate treatment of the solid and hazardous waste.
