The document which was today on the parliament’s agenda has neither vision nor ambition. We consider it a failure, said the Green Action NGO leader Luka Tomac.
Tomac said that the scientific community had been warning for 20 years that Croatia had 10 years to make a turnaround in its climate policy, however, the document showed that the government was not inclined to make such plans and postponed the climate action for the period after 2030.
Activist Marija Mileta said that the strategy envisaged investments, import, and further development of fossil fuels even until 2050.
