Swedish Environmental Protection Agency is implementing a three-year project in BiH to fight air pollution - “IMPAQ”

Bosnia and Herzegovina needs to improve its air quality and air quality management before it can meet requirements for entry to the EU. According to the WHO, Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of Europe’s most polluted countries and has some of the worst air quality in the world. A WHO study shows that the country faces 79.8 premature deaths per 100 000 population due to poor air quality. In other countries, for example in Sweden, the death rate is much lower, with a corresponding figure of 7.2 premature deaths per 100 000 people.
