The National Assembly House hosted the public hearing on: “Implementation of the United Nations Climate Change Conference - COP26 Agreement in Serbia”, organised by the Environmental Protection Committee.
Dacic said that Serbia is active in the fight and has made major strides in contributing to global efforts, primarily through the adoption of the Law on Climate Change and a set of four energy laws. “The National Assembly will continue to work on improving the regulatory framework and implementing the green agenda in Serbia”, Ivica Dacic emphasised.
In his address, the National Assembly Speaker also highlighted the many years of successful operation of the Green Parliamentary Group.
