image of Environmental Performance Reviews: Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Environmental Performance Reviews Programme is considered an important instrument for countries with economies in transition. The second round puts particular emphasis on implementation, integration, financing and the socio-economic interface with the environment. This report takes stock of the progress made by Bosnia and Herzegovina in the management of its environment since the country was first reviewed in 2004. It assesses the implementation of the recommendations in the first review (Annex I). It also covers nine issues of importance to Bosnia and Herzegovina concerning policymaking, planning and implementation, the financing of environmental policies and projects, and the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors, in particular water management, waste management and forestry.



Monitoring, information, public participation and education

A significant amount of ambient air quality measurement is currently carried out in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). There are many useful data showing the historical trends in concentrations and the spatial distributions of concentrations in a few urban areas. Air quality monitoring is carried out, either by public institutions or by the polluters, in most of the hot spots in the country. The current air-quality monitoring network is presented in table 3.1.
