Bosnia and Herzegovina
At a Glance
The Europe and Eurasia Regional Mission serves Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, North Macedonia, and Serbia.
Climate change risks in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) are heightened by high unemployment among a generally vulnerable population, damaged infrastructure, and lags in technical innovation. Despite abundant water resources, the country is facing water use and availability challenges that will likely worsen with warming temperatures and increased risks of drought and extreme precipitation. The agriculture sector is also vulnerable to these stressors. BiH's rich biodiversity faces habitat shifts and loss, as well as increased risk from forest fires and pathogens. BiH's largest climate vulnerabilities are in energy and infrastructure, which require significant modernization informed by the country's climate risks. Greenhouse gas emissions in the country are dominated by electricity and heat production.
