News Bosnia-Herzegovina: Environmental Performance Review

UNECE Since the end of the war, Bosnia and Herzegovina has made considerable progress, particularly in maintaining the peace, creating new institutions and establishing a legal structure. Other challenges reflect deeper underlying issues of socio economic and political transition. Serious environmental problems that date back to pre war years combined with a general unawareness of environmental issues, a very complicated institutional base and a lack of implementation of the legislation are the main obstacles to the sustainable development of the country.
