Serbia’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, in cooperation with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), has invited all interested parties to submit project ideas for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change at the national level whose implementation requires funds from the Green Climate Fund (GCF).

The deadline for submitting climate change projects is August 16.

In cooperation with UNEP, the ministry is implementing a project for the development of the capacities of the Republic of Serbia for effective engagement with the GCF, within which the national program of priorities for financing from the GCF is being prepared, according to the public call.

The aim of the national program is to present the priority needs for funding from the GCF, thereby increasing the possibility of obtaining funds from this fund.

The national program must present priority ideas for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change at the national level for whose implementation the funds of the GCF are needed, the call underlines.

The key requirement for participation in the public call is that projects are in line with national priorities, important for fulfilling the obligations of the Republic of Serbia under the Paris Agreement, and the requirements and conditions of the GCF.

All interested parties, including ministries, local municipalities, state institutions, public companies, private companies, and civil society organizations have the right to participate in the public call.

Projects can concern the infrastructure, but also capacity building.

The selected projects will be an integral part of the national program of priorities for financing from the GCF. So far, the national program has recognized these priority areas:

  • Increasing energy efficiency in buildings;
  • Sustainable mobility, with a particular focus on promoting the use of electric and hybrid vehicles and the development of a network of charging stations for EVs that use renewable energy sources; and
  • Adaptation of the agricultural sector to climate change, taking into account the potential of forests and water resources.
