Country Context

The Czech Republic is a country in Central Europe bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast. With an area of 78,870 km2, it is considered as a small to mid-sized country. After a series of years of high GDP growth, the Czech economy fell into a recession at the end of 2008. In 2013, the Czech economy moved on the trajectory of renewed recovery, and in 2015, strengthened investment activity and coinciding plunge in the oil price led to strong GDP growth at 5.3% in 2015. The Czech Republic is traditionally an industrial country and industry represents 27% of the Czech GDP. In 2015, industrial production grew by 4.6%. The sector with the highest growth rate was manufacture of wearing apparel which grew by 16.9%. The Czech Republic has population of 10. 6 million. The Czech Republic lies within the Atlantic-continental area of the moderate climate zone of the northern hemisphere. Regardless of considerable year-to-year fluctuations, there is an apparent trend of gradual rise in average annual temperature amounting to approximately 0.2°C over 10 years. (Seventh National Communication, 2017). The Czech Republic submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to UNFCCC as an EU Member State in 2015.
