State administration and local self-government have numerous competences, which, according to the Constitution of the Republic of Serbia, have been elaborated through special laws. One of the specific competencies is the protection of the environment. There are many legal documents regulating this matter - from the Constitution to by-laws and acts at the level of local self-government units, so it can be said that the legal regulation in this area is extensive but not yet complete. In addition, the state administration, as a part of the state authority, plays a significant role in environmental protection policy, and local self-government authorities enable the implementation of this policy directly in immediate communication with citizens.
