Overview

In May 2014 the heaviest rainfall in more than a century hit Bosnia and Herzegovina, causing intense floods that affected 1 million people and destroyed infrastructure, businesses, livelihoods, farms and crops.

Since the start of the disaster the UN has been working closely with the BIH authorities, World Bank, bilateral donors and the EU to ensure prompt and efficient aid delivery. The UN is coordinating the International Community response to the floods to address the immediate effects of the disaster.
