Bosnia and Herzegovina has been able to achieve significant results since it emerged from the war-torn era of the late 1990s and set a course toward integration into the European Union (EU). Much of the infrastructure destroyed in the war has been rebuilt, and institutions have been established to govern the country at all levels of authority.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is vulnerable to natural shocks that could derail the country’s development agenda. The gradual degradation of water, air, forests, and agricultural land is a serious risk to sustainable economic growth and increases the risk of catastrophic shocks triggered by natural events (World Bank, 2019).
