Civil Society Organisation’s assessment on the Progress of Serbia of Chapter 27 – Environment and Climate Change, for 2015. The report lays out the main developments in environmental and climate policy in Serbia, analyses challenges and provides recommendations on how to move forward.
Accession negotiations are particularly lively in Serbia, a country that plans to build several new coal power plants right before joining the EU. Hence, we put particular focus on Serbia, strengthening the NGO engagement during the EU accession negotiations, so that EU policies are not watered down in the process. In doing so, we are part of the Coalition 27, an NGO group that monitors and influences the negotiation concerning environment and climate legislation. The members of the Coalition also include Belgrade Open School, CEKOR, Environment Improvement Centre, GM Optimist, NGO Fractal, WWF Serbia, and Young Researchers of Serbia.
