The Ministry of Environmental Protection, as the institution in charge of coordinating the policy in the field of climate change, has prepared draft mitigation and adaptation components for the Revision of the Nationally Determined Contribution of the Republic of Serbia to the Paris Climate Agreement (NDC). These mitigation and adaptation components of Serbia’s NDC were prepared in cooperation with a team of experts and members of the inter-ministerial Working Group of the UNDP-GEF project “Establishing Transparency Framework for the Republic of Serbia”. The draft document is based on the Draft Low Carbon Development Strategy of Serbia with the Action Plan, as well as on the basis of information and data collected during the implementation of projects ” Second Biennial Update Report and the Third National Communication of the Republic of Serbia to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change” and GCF-NAP project “Advancing medium and long-term adaptation planning in the Republic of Serbia”. The NDC revision process is supported by the UN Development Programme.
The document provides a basis for raising the ambitions of the Republic of Serbia in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as adaptation measures to climate change, compared to the Initial Nationally Determined Contribution that the Republic of Serbia submitted in 2015 to the UNFCCC Secretariat. Also, the additional analyzes are underway that will provide insight into the possibility for the Republic of Serbia to invest additional efforts in combating climate change through the concept of nature-based solutions and strengthening the synergy between air protection measures and reducing GHG emissions. In addition, the document will be gender sensitive and will contribute to the development of the first roadmap for a just transition of the Republic of Serbia to low-carbon development.
