Croatia is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and has identified agriculture, forestry, biodiversity, energy, water resources and tourism as its adaptation priorities. Croatia has ratified the UNFCCC as an Annex 1 Country, and in 2015 also ratified the Hyogo Framework for Action and established a National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction. Croatia submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (2015) as a member to the European Union’s submission, and published its Sixth National Communication in 2014. The capacity of the Croatian state and wider society to adapt to climate change can be improved with sectoral adaptation strategies developed and mainstreamed across government planning departments. Current government strategies related to climate change in Croatia emphasize on mitigation, and there is little mention of the concept of adaptation. Croatia has made a firm commitment to reducing emissions by introducing a carbon fee, promoting renewable energy, encouraging energy efficiency, and committing to GHG reductions under the Kyoto Protocol.
