OUR WORK - ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT

Energy efficiency and environmental sustainability are essential components of a European future for countries like Bosnia and Herzegovina. With a generally low awareness of the interdependence between environment and development, national priority setting in this area is quite limited. UNDP focuses its support on ensuring that Bosnia and Herzegovina has the human and financial resources to sustainably use its environmental and natural resources, that it meets the EU Environmental Acquis and creates green, resilient economic growth and sustainable livelihoods for its population.
