This is the second EPR of Serbia published by the UNECE. The report takes stock of the progress made by Serbia in the management of its environment since the country was first reviewed in 2002, when the country was part of Yugoslavia. While looking closely at the implementation of the recommendations of the first review, the report also covers seven issues of importance to Serbia concerning policymaking, planning and implementation, the financing of environmental policies and projects, and the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors, and the promotion of sustainable development. Issues receiving special attention during the review included compliance and enforcement mechanisms, economic instruments and environmental funds, and the integration of environmental concerns in energy and in water management.
ECE would also like to express its deep appreciation to the Governments of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, as well as the European Environmental Agency and the United Nations Development Programme, for their support to the Environmental Performance Review Programme and to this review.
