Slovakia has decided to reduce its electricity production from coal, leading to a gradual phasing out of brown coal mining, and to increase its emission reduction targets from 12 to 20 percent by 2023, stated Slovak Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini (Smer-SD) at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 25) in Madrid. Slovakia will set aside another €2.5 billion for investments in environmentally-related projects. This year the country has contributed for the first time to the Green Climate Fund and is planning to continue this in the coming years.
