Bulgaria to draft climate change bill

Bulgaria's environment ministry has decided to draft a bill to combat climate change, Boryana Kamenova, head of the ministry's department in charge of implementing EU climate change policy, said on Friday.

The bill will allow the country to fulfill its commitments under the Kyoto Protocol to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, she said.

The new law should provide for the implementation of measures for changing the behaviour of both consumers and producers, such as an increase in energy efficiency, limiting transport hazardous emissions and transition to a low carbon economy, Kamenova added.

It will also regulate Bulgaria's participation in the European Emissions Trading Scheme, as well as its green investment schemes.

The bill, which will be drafted by a working group at the Ministry starting next week, is expected to be endorsed by the government and go to parliament for approval by the end of 2011. /Source: Dnevnik/
