At a Glance
The Europe and Eurasia Regional Mission serves Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, North Macedonia, and Serbia.
North Macedonia is characterized by a variable climate, which, combined with rising temperatures and more extreme floods, droughts, and other weather events, puts the country’s agriculture sector at risk. Forests cover nearly half of the country’s land, and higher temperatures combined with drought increase the risk of wild fires. With a relatively open economy, reliance on foreign trade is high and, except during the global economic crisis, economic growth has remained stable since the country gained independence in 1991. The energy sector is the top sector emitter, followed by industrial processes, agriculture, and waste.
