Energy aspect of coping with climate change in UNESCO region in RNM can be addressed in next areas increase of usage of renewable energy sources (solar energy) and the potential for its use at institutional and households level ,lowering use of hydro potentials due to disruption of biodiversity of the lake.
As economic aspect to cope with climate change can be analyzed the potentials of the lake for tourism and rural development and economic benefits (Business sector, hotels, tourist facilities)
On intuitional level as proposed activities to cope with climate change increasing of Cross-sector cooperation on local ,regional ,national and supranational level is needed because Ohrid Lake is divided between Macedonia and Albania ,and lately part of Ohrid Lake that belongs to Albania will be propose to become protected under UNESCO with which all this region will need supranational collaboration in terms of protection, sustainable development and coping with climate changes. Overcoming of administrative obstacles for better management of natural resources is needed. Citizens' participation in decision-making at the local level is also important part of creating and implementing measures for coping with climate change and environmental protection.
