Environmental issues in Serbia[edit | edit source]
Environmental issues in Serbia include air pollution, deforestation, various categories of threat to endemic species and climate changes. Several environmental organizations operating in Serbia have protested the government's handling of these issues.
Though it is part of the Paris Agreement, Serbia still invests in coal-fired power stations and it has still not passed environmental law and strategy in accordance with EU's climate change policy. There is also a lack of documentation and understanding of climate changes in Serbia and their potential impacts on biodiversity. W
