Serbia submitted its revised NDC in August 2022.

Key highlights from the NDC
  • Serbia committed to an unconditional emissions reduction target of 13.2% compared to 2010 levels, or 33.3% compared to 1990 levels, by 2030.
  • This is an increase compared to the first NDC which aimed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 9.8% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels.
  • The new target is economy-wide and includes key economic sectors such as energy production and consumption, agriculture, transport, industry, waste management, and forestry.
  • The revised NDC also elaborates mitigation co-benefits resulting from adaptation actions which will be further detailed in the National Adaptation Programme (NAP) that is under development.
  • A broad range of stakeholders were consulted during the revision process, through public consultations and online surveys and questionnaires.
