The Ministry of Environment, Climate and Energy Baden-Württemberg is committed to the EU Danube Region Strategy. The goal of the engagement is better environmental conditions in the Danube region. We want to help ensure that the countries of the Danube Region achieve the environmental objectives of the European Union in a short time. That is why we maintain a regular exchange of experience and knowledge transfer with partners and institutions in the Danube region.

Modern environmental technologies contribute to better energy and resource efficiency. In this way, a future-oriented environmental infrastructure can be created economically and sustainably. Baden-Württemberg wants to support the countries of the EU Danube Region Strategy. Baden-Württemberg also works with Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Hungary in Joint Governmental Commissions.

Through many years of growing contacts in the course of the EU- Strategy for the Danube Region, a large number of successful and promisingprojects have been established between Baden-Württemberg and the regions in Eastern and Southeastern Europe. Regularvisits by experts from the various regions here in Baden-Württemberg allow us to work even more closely and efficiently with the competent authorities and institutions in the regions of the Danube Region.

Particularly effective is thebioenergy partnership between Serbia and Baden-Württemberg, which was launched in 2014. In addition to the scientific and business cooperation, this partnership enables a lively dialogue and transfer of knowledge on the political level. This will improve the political framework for laws and funding programs and facilitate the establishment of bioenergy projects.
