Establishing Transparency Framework for the Republic of Serbia

About the Project

The project supports the Government of Serbia in strengthening the methodologies and tools necessary to enhance transparency as described in Article 13 of the Paris Agreement. The project will finalize and launch a monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) system that will allow Serbia to define and implement climate change-related policies and measures as expressed in its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) effectively, and will allow the country to undertake more ambitious commitments in its NDCs over time.

  • National transparency capacities for NDC tracking and reporting on vulnerability and adaptation strengthened;
  • Domestic efficient MRV system for updating the NDCs that supports stakeholder engagement established and launched;

  • National GHG Inventories improved and country-specific emission factors for CO2 from different sectors developed;
  • NDC tracking and reporting training programme on climate change adaptation and mitigation for specific institutions prepared and conducted;
  • NDC tracking and reporting on climate change adaptation aligned with DRR tracking and reporting;
