At a Glance
The Europe and Eurasia Regional Mission serves Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, North Macedonia, and Serbia.
Important drivers of Kosovo's economic growth, such as agriculture and industry, are vulnerable to water shortages, heat waves, drought, and flooding. Rising temperatures and unregulated harvesting impact the health and cover of Kosovo's extensive forests, increasing forest fire incidence. Conflict-driven destruction of infrastructure, as well as poor regulation of land use and construction increase the population's exposure to climate hazards through structural vulnerability, with additional, related health implications through inadequate sewage and high concentrations of atmospheric pollutants. While emissions data is limited, Kosovo's recorded greenhouse gas emissions are driven almost entirely by the energy sector.
