Assuring sustainable supply of aggregates is an important challenge due to their economic importance and the potential environmental and social impacts associated with their production. The SNAP-SEE project focuses on developing and disseminating tools for aggregates management planning in Southeast Europe (SEE). It builds on the results of the Sustainable Aggregates Resource Management (SARMa) project. Due to regional differences in historical development, there are diverse approaches to aggregates policies, planning and management in SEE, which is hindering resource efficiency and economic development in the region:

  • differences among mineral policies;
  • aggregates policies and plans are distributed among many different legal documents, making coordination and a comprehensive understanding difficult;
  • authorities in SEE countries do not have the understanding of either sustainable aggregates resource management (SARM) or planning for sustainable supply mix (SSM) and;
  • there is almost a complete lack of coordination on planning supply from primary and secondary aggregates sources.


The identified problems are a lack of:

  • coordinated/regional planning for aggregates’ supply that addresses cross-sectoral interactions and ensures that documents are consistent;
  • integrated planning for primary and secondary aggregates that addresses resource efficiency;
  • capacity and competence to address the preceding two problems;
  • stakeholder engagement and consultation process to ensure that planning addresses the concerns and needs of all target groups.



The primary objective is to develop a Toolbox for Aggregates Planning to support national/regional, primary and secondary aggregates planning in SEE countries, which will include:
