Reports & Briefings

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.

  • Submission - Feedback on ENTSOS' Proposals for TYNDP 2022 Storylines

    Future energy infrastructure planning in Europe needs to be fully aligned with the Paris Agreement. CAN Europe recommends to increase variation of TYNDP 2022 storylines by assessing higher ambition of greenhouse gas emission reductions. In order to reach the 1.5°C target of the Paris Agreement, a trajectory towards net-zero emissions in 2040 should be assessed. Instead of primarily opposing “decentralised” and “global” solutions in the TYNDP 2022 storylines, at least one scenario should analyse how to prepare European energy infrastructure for a 100% renewable energy system in the most efficient way, combining the best out of both “decentralised” and “global” futures.
