Second Biennial Update Report and Third National Communication under the UNFCCC

About the Project

The project is supporting the fulfillment of UNFCCC reporting requirements, and the establishment of a regular biennial reporting cycle to UNFCCC (BURs to be submitted biennially, and NCs every 4 years), while improving information exchange and partnership between stakeholders (Govt, research/academia, CSOs, businesses, etc.) in the climate change area. The project will enable the Republic of Serbia to prepare and submit its Second Biennial Update Report (2BUR) and Third National Communication (3NC) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
