The National Assembly of Serbia adopted a legislation package regulating the sectors of environmental protection and agriculture, the responsible ministry said on its website. The changes to the Law on Environmental Protection envisage the formation of a budgetary Green Fund, among other solutions. The Law on Waste Management was also amended with the aim to help economic development, provide continuity in the operation of facilities eligible for integrated permit and in the system of waste management financing. Control over special waste streams and the circular or green economy foundations were also included, the statement said.

The mentioned facilities will be able to operate from the end of the test phase until integrated permit is obtained. The Law on Nature Protection was amended to authorize the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection to give consent on sectoral plans and programmes for the use of natural resources in protected and ecological network areas. The concept of geopark was introduced as a clearly defined territory where geoheritage structures are protected, secured, presented and promoted.

Amendments to the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context, or Espoo Convention, were ratified, the press release adds.
