While progress has been made over the last decade in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) on environmental issues, there is still scope to improve legislative frameworks and enforcement of environmental policies.

The BiH Environmental Strategy and Action Plan 2030+ will:

  • build on existing and past strategic environmental documents to strengthen current environmental governance in BiH, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH), the Republic of Srpska (RS), and the BrĨko District (BD)
  • support BiH in its European Union approximation through the alignment of the environmental strategy with the EU environmental acquis
  • provide a roadmap for future environmental-sector measures and investments, and mechanisms for their implementation beyond 2030.
