The Adaptation Planning Framework (APF) is a step by step tool designed to be used by anyone promoting an initiative, be it a policy, a program, a plan, a project or an activity, be it public or private. The APF centres around the assessment of risks from climate change and related extreme weather impacts, and identifying and prioritising adaptation options to reduce the severity of key risk. The APF is composed with a set of guiding questions for each step to support the user moving forward in the three stages: frame, assess and plan.

Climate Change Strategy

The adoption of a national cross-sectoral Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan will enable Serbia to implement a comprehensive national strategic and legal framework for climate action (mitigation and adaptation) in compliance with international obligations and pledges on greenhouse gas mitigation (Paris Agreement and EU accession).


The Climate Change Strategy will be prepared in consultation with relevant stakeholders, including governmental institutions, industry, local communities, academics and NGOs. The inputs of stakeholders will lead to a richer strategy which is relevant to Serbian circumstances and appropriate solutions.
