On 29 May 2017 Serbia ratified the Paris Agreement. Unfortunately, in the same time, the Government put out a draft of the national Energy Strategy Implementation Plan, prioritising new coal project and foreseeing further exploration of coal deposits in the country. National NGOs will be fighting these plans in the coming months.

Serbia will have the chance to improve its act at several Energy Community meetings next month: by supporting progressive amendments to the Energy Community Treaty and supporting the proposal for the adoption of the Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) in the Energy Community.
We also expect to hear all countries commit to the energy transition at the Sustainability Forum of the Energy Community, to be held on the 9th of June. This will be the first forum where Ministers from these countries will share panels with the civil society and discuss key climate and energy challenges.
