Addressing climate change in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Eco Ltd worked with the country office of an international development organization to finalize the Initial National Communication (INC) of Bosnia and Herzegovina to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The INC represented a ground-breaking, cumulative effort of more than 40 specialists from BiH’s three entities. Eco’s expert worked to transform the report into a consistent whole that would meet the working deadline of submission before the upcoming UNFCCC Conference of the Parties.
The report was reviewed to ensure compliance with UNFCCC guidelines for non-Annex 1 countries, edited so that its technical sections were clear to a broader audience, and drafted in order to highlight key messages about climate change. The revised draft also emphasized overviews of vulnerability and adaptation to climate change, and a clear discussion of necessary next steps for BiH, including urgent research and policy needs.
