On October 14, we visited the municipalities Bosilovo and Vasilevo, where together with Dawn Carmin, USAID's North Macedonia Director of General Development Office, we saw the enclosed landfill in Bosilovo, as well as the new park in the village of Chanaklija, which are the result of joint local community actions in these municipalities.
Municipalities, waste collection enterprises, local businesses, and civil society organizations together with the residents have joined their resources, skills, and ideas to realize these local community actions. By enclosing the landfill, the residents of Bosilovo solved a significant challenge as a result of the uncontrolled disposal of garbage. So, now they walk on cleaner soil and breathe cleaner air, free of toxic materials. Thanks to the synergy of the local actors, the residents of the village of Chanaklija got a modern and new park for enjoyment and recreation for all generations.
These local community actions are supported by USAID's Community Development Program, implemented by the Rural Development Network of North Macedonia, in cooperation with LAG Belasica Ograzden.
This activity is part of the Community Development Program, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
