Political Climate - Climate Change in Serbia

Climate change is not just a natural phenomenon, but a political problem as well. Ways to mitigate and adapt to it are decided on by public institutions and negotiated at international conferences, which makes those decisions essentially political. Serbia's accession negotiations with the EU, as well as the Paris Agreement bring with them new political commitments and will require new solutions and an open public dialogue on what we need to change in our economy, infrastructure, and everyday life. 

With that in mind, the article series "Political Climate" aims to re-examine Serbia's climate policies.
