Agricultural legislation defines the basis for sustainable agriculture in all Western Balkan countries. However, so far this legislation has not integrated climate change adaptation, nor are mountain areas reflected. The only exception is the recently adopted Law on Agriculture of the Republic of Croatia, given that the EU directives have been transposed to Croatian legislation as part of its recent accession to the EU. This law refers to promoting competitiveness of agriculture through a multi- purpose production adapted to climate change, and to ensuring sustainable management of natural resources that entail actions to respond to climate change. Particular attention is paid to the adaptation aspects important for rural development.
