Sustainable Development in Croatia and the European Green Deal

Commissioned by: Friedrich Ebert Stiftung
Project duration: October 30, 2020 – December 10, 2020
Project manager: Vedran Recher

The COVID-19 pandemic provided us with a kind of natural experiment in which we could see what a world looks like in which demand for fossil fuels is falling instead of growing, in which states copy-paste public policies out of ignorance and fear. Public policies boil down to survival until the next quarter—a world where there is no room for strategic thinking because it has faced an unexpected challenge. But what about the challenge we know lurks around the corner? This publication sought to outline this path towards sustainable development in the European Green Deal for the Republic of Croatia.
