Abstract: Today, the fight against climate change also involves investment in the green economy and through sustainable development, a topic of particular interest to the United Nations which, with the 2030 Agenda, is aiming to reduce CO2 emissions and our impact on the environment, an agenda which has also been adopted thanks to the support of the European Union. This is demonstrated by the investment that Italy and the European Union are making in emerging and developing countries, as evidenced by funding in particular in the western Balkans which are not only having a positive impact on the environment but, in some cases, are creating new jobs and supporting the development of the skills base. We look here at particular examples of such funding in Albania and Croatia, the latter an EU member, the former an aspirant country, but both of which have chosen to pursue green energy both for intrinsic reasons of climate change and for reasons of diversifying the energy supply, but also as a route to accessing the funds which helps to procure advances in social and economic development.
