Overall, climate change receives very little funds and attention in Bulgaria since the majority of the policies are focusing on the energy-supply of the country.1 Bulgariaâ's government and Ministry of Economy, Energy, and Tourism have begun to take measures to ensure that Bulgaria is insulated from the negative effects of climate change and preserves the nationâ's water supply.2 There is legislation in the works for a National Adaptation Strategy to aid in investments for climate change.3

Bulgaria, a former Communist country that entered the EU on 1 January 2007, averaged more than 6% annual growth from 2004 to 2008, driven by significant amounts of bank lending, consumption, and foreign direct investment. Successive governments have demonstrated a commitment to economic reforms and responsible fiscal planning, but the global downturn sharply reduced domestic demand, exports, capital inflows, and industrial production. GDP contracted by 5.5% in 2009, stagnated in 2010, despite a significant recovery in exports, grew 1.7% in 2011, and 1% in 2012. Despite having a favorable investment regime, including low, flat corporate income taxes, significant challenges remain. ...See More Corruption in public administration, a weak judiciary, and the presence of organized crime continue to hamper the country's investment climate and economic prospects.
