About the project

The ESAP 2030+ project is as an adequate response of the Swedish Embassy to 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 their environmental strategies.

Hence, the primary goal of the ESAP 2030+ project is to support relevant authorities at the Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), FBiH, RS and the Brčko District (BD) level to develop the BiH ESAP 2030+. The BiH ESAP is a document that includes environmental strategies and action plans for the FBiH, RS and BD as well as BiH level actions.

The development of BiH ESAP 2030+ is entrusted to the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) from Sweden, who 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 the country.

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 the country, and to further alignment of the country’s legal and institutional framework with the EU 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 approximation to the EU.
