NDC Status

Serbia submitted its first NDC in July 2017. This initial NDC committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 9.8% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels.

A revised version of the NDC was drafted in 2020. According to the draft revised NDC, Serbia plans to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 33.3% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels.

This is an economy-wide target that includes key economic sectors such as energy production and consumption, agriculture, transport, industry, waste management, and forestry.

Serbia’s draft revised NDC also includes climate change adaptation measures in most vulnerable sectors affected by climate change. The country is also preparing its first National Climate Change Adaptation Plan.

A Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) framework was also developed and is embedded in the newly adopted Climate Change Law.

The Climate Promise is being delivered in collaboration with key partners. Thanks to our partners in Serbia:
