image of Environmental Performance Review: Bosnia and Herzegovina

This programme assesses progress made by individual countries, in this case Bosnia and Herzagovina, in reconciling their economic and social development with environmental protection, as well as in meeting international commitments on environment and sustainable development. It assists countries to improve their environmental policies by making concrete recommendations for better policy design and implementation. The reviews help to integrate environmental policies into sector-specific policies such as those in agriculture, energy, transport and health. The publication is aimed at officials and experts working for public authorities responsible for environmental policy, representatives of civil society, the business community, academia and the media.




This third Environmental Performance Review (EPR) of Bosnia and Herzegovina takes stock of progress made by Bosnia and Herzegovina in the management of its environment since it was reviewed for the second time in 2010 and assesses the implementation of the recommendations made in the second review. It covers issues of specific importance to the country related to legal and policy frameworks, greening the economy, air protection, water and waste management, biodiversity and protected areas and protection of the Adriatic Sea. It also examines the efforts of Bosnia and Herzegovina to integrate environmental considerations into its policies in the forestry sector.
