Serbia has committed itself to the European Union’s climate goals. This includes a pledge to align the national climate and energy policy with the European Green Deal. The joint cooperation contributes to the fulfilment of these EU requirements with a special focus on the topics „energy“ and „environment and climate change“. Germany is supporting Serbia on this path with different instruments and on different levels (strategy and policy formulation, elaboration of technical and administrative framework conditions as well as provision of required investment programs, knowledge transfer and skills development). Germany finances and supports projects to increase the share of renewable energy sources, higher energy efficiency and for setting the framework for decarbonisation. Moreover, we finance the construction of state of the art water and waste-water treatment plants.
