About the BiH ESAP 2030+ project

The ESAP 2030+ project is as an adequate response of the Embassy of Sweden in Bosnia and Herzegovina to a request made by the authorities at the state level, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH), the Republika Srpska (RS), and the Brčko District (BD) to support the development of a BiH wide environmental strategy and action plan including four jurisdiction strategies and action plans.

The development of BiH ESAP 2030+ is entrusted to the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) from Sweden, and when adopted, it will provide a critical tool for relevant authorities to reach environmental sustainability and improved citizen health and well-being for current and future generations across BiH.

The project is expected to be completed in April 2022 with key accomplishments:

  • Environmental, water and other authorities in BiH to have an environmental strategy and action plan with ambitious strategic goals and thematic objectives, yet feasible actions that are clearly defined, agreed and adopted. This document will steer policy measures and domestic and international financing that will result in a better state of the environment in BiH. It will help to further align the BiH's legal and institutional frameworks with the EU environmental laws and procedures, the so called environmental acquis
  • The capacities of environmental organizations, institutions and networks in BiH are enhanced
  • The general public and the business sector are more aware of the importance of environmental issues in BiH.

In the long-term, the project will improve the state of the environment in BiH as well as contribute to progress in the process of BiH becoming a member of the EU.
