The main strategic objective of the Third National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) is to outline the framework for action to combat climate change for the period 2013-2020 and to focus the country’s efforts on actions leading to reduction of the negative impacts of climate change and implementation of the undertaken commitments.
The Plan provides specific measures for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors and these measures are consistent with both the national policy on climate change and the potential of the national economy to reduce emissions. The overall effect of the measures will ensure the implementation of the commitments taken and the achievement of the legally binding European objectives.
The Plan is structured logically, starting with a brief description of global trends and scenarios on climate change and presenting their basic aspects relating to Bulgaria - facts, scenarios and possible consequences. The next two sections of the Plan address key aspects of the international and European climate policy and objectives that the EU is to achieve by 2020.
The third section draws special attention to the legislative package “Climate and Energy” which outlines the framework of the active EU policy on climate change for the 18 period 2013-2020 and was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council at the end of 2008.
