Country Context

The Republic of Serbia is located in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula, covering a total surface area of 88,361 km2. The State borders Hungary to the north, Romania and Bulgaria to the east, Macedonia to the south, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro to the west.

Serbia has three major geographical areas: the Pannonian Plain; hilly areas with lower mountains; and low-lands and mountainous area. The climate of Serbia is moderate-continental, with more or less pronounced local characteristics and a gradual transition between seasons. Continental climate prevails in the mountainous regions of above 1,000 m altitude. The southwestern part of the country borders Mediterranean, subtropical and continental climate. According to the Koppen climate classification, most of Serbia has a moderately warm rainy climate with warm summers, whilst mountainous have a snowy climate.

The Republic of Serbia has been part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) since 2001 and the Kyoto Protocol (Protocol) since 2008.
