European Agency for Reconstruction
|Acting Director Adriano Martins|
The European Agency for Reconstruction used to manage EU's main assistance programmes in Serbia, Kosovo (under UNSCR 1244/99), Montenegro and the Republic of Macedonia. The Agency was headquartered in Thessaloniki, Greece, with operational centres in Pristina (Kosovo), Belgrade (Serbia), Podgorica (Montenegro) and Skopje (Republic of Macedonia). In December 2008, the EAR officially closed its doors as its mandate came to an end. Since its creation in the aftermath of the Kosovo War, the agency handled a portfolio of almost three billion euros.
