Climate change is an issue uniting the world, Minister of Environmental Protection Irena Vujović said and added Serbia is continuing to contribute to the global struggle with the adoption of the Law on Climate Change and confirming it is responsible toward its citizens.

The National Assembly of Serbia adopted the Law on Climate Change, laying the foundation for the establishment of a system for limiting greenhouse gas emissions. It will have positive effects on public health and economic development, Minister of Environmental Protection Irena Vujović said.

Development to be based on innovation, green energy, green jobs

“With this law we are showing that environmental protection and climate change issues are high on the government’s priority list and that Serbia is determined to base its future economic growth and development on innovation, green energy and the creation of green jobs,” she stated.

With the Climate Change Law, Serbia is confirming that it is on a European path, minister Irena Vujović says

Climate change is an issue uniting the world so Serbia is continuing to contribute to the global struggle with the adoption of the Law on Climate Change and confirms it is responsible toward its citizens, according to Vujović. She noted that the European Commission proposed a Climate Law as one of the priorities within the European Green Deal. With its law, Serbia is confirming that it is on a European path, the minister stressed.

Boosting resilience

Vujović said the new legislation would boost the society’s resilience to climate change impact, especially in the sectors of healthcare, water management, forestry and agriculture. It regulates planned adjustment to climate change and the establishment of a system for reporting to the international community, namely the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – UNFCCC, with regard to the Paris Agreement.

The law obligates the ministry to work with other institutions on a low-carbon development strategy. Vujović also said it is important for the standards and demands in the European market as well as for the accession to the EU.
