Environmental Performance Reviews: Republic of Serbia

Second review

This second Review takes stock of the progress made by Serbia in the management of its environment since the country was first reviewed in 2002, when it was part of Yugoslavia. While looking closely at the implementation of the recommendations of the first Review, the report also covers seven issues of importance to Serbia concerning policymaking, planning and implementation, the financing of environmental policies and projects, the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors, and the promotion of sustainable development.

Hide / Show Abstract

Serbia is increasing its international cooperation in the energy field and has committed itself to reaching European Union (EU) standards on energy. Progress has occurred mainly on the legal framework, policy development and institutional changes. Core elements are the adoption of the Law on Energy (OG RS No. 84/2004) in 2004, the establishment of the Energy Agency in 2005 and the Serbian Energy Efficiency Agency (SEEA) in 2002, the adoption in 2005 of the Energy Sector Development Strategy and of the National Action Plan for Gasification and, in early 2007, of, the Energy Strategy Implementation Programme for the period from 2007 to 2012 (ESIP 2007–2012). The National Environmental Strategy (NES), moreover, lists priority measures to reduce environmental impacts from the energy sector.
