MINISTER: SERBIA TO RATIFY CLIMATE CHANGE DEAL WITHIN YEAR

BELGRADE, Dec. 21, 2015 (BETA) Serbia plans to sign and ratify the climate change deal made on Dec. 12 at the U.N.'s Paris Climate Conference within one year, Serbian Minister of Agriculture and Environmental Protection Snezana Bogosavljevic-Boskovic said on Dec. 21. "The plan is to complete the signing and ratification within one year," she told a conference held to reflect on the Paris Climate Conference (COP21), when global agreement was struck on fighting climate change.

Bogosavljevic-Boskovic and French Ambassador to Serbia Christine Moro said the Paris Climate Conference had been successful and recalled that it had resulted in a deal which envisages limiting global temperature growth to under two degrees Celsius by the end of the century, with a possibility of limiting it to 1.5 degrees.
Moro said the agreement was legally binding and based on consensus, and that 188 of the 196 members of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change had submitted their goals for greenhouse gas emission reduction.

Deputy UNDP resident representative in Serbia Steliana Nedera said 2015 had been a historic year for the U.N. when it comes to fighting climate change and that Serbia had joined in the efforts well prepared.

She stressed that the U.N. would continue to support the development of policies related to the area in Serbia, drafting the first national plan on adjustment and an oversight system, and reporting.
