Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) became a member of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on December 6, 2000, and the Kyoto Protocol was ratified on April 22, 2008. The Initial National Communication (INC) of BiH to the UNFCCC was submitted in 2010.
The TNC was completed in 2017. The TNC has advanced the state of climate modeling, impacts assessment, and policy analysis in Bosnia and Herzegovina and it has also established a measurement baseline for public awareness and outlined key capacity needs. Furthermore, work on the TNC has enhanced the individual capacity of climate researchers in Bosnia and Herzegovina in government, academia, and NGOs, and it has strengthened the organizational capacity of the UNFCCC focal institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This Project will not only support the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina in meeting its above specified obligations as a UNFCCC signatory but will also serve as a significant strategic document for sustainable development. The cross-cutting nature of the FNC process will foster relationships across entities and economic sectors, by establishing linkages between environment and other sectors.
The overall project’s objective is to enable Bosnia and Herzegovina to prepare its FNC and TBUR to the Conference of Parties. Preparation of the FNC and TBUR will attain higher level change by contributing to the achievement of the national environmental objectives in several ways: (1) It will enhance the ability of Bosnia and Herzegovina to participate actively in addressing the global environmental threat of climate change; (2) It will further develop capacity in climate change-related research and analysis that can support effective environmental policies and provide important data related to environmental challenges to sustainable development in Bosnia and Herzegovina that go beyond climate change; and (3) It will provide improved information and analysis for policies in key areas, such as water resources, agriculture, etc. Specifically, the capacity development efforts under this project and its emphasis on disseminating the FNC and its findings to policy-makers will contribute to enhanced country’s legal and strategic frameworks for sustainable management of natural, cultural and energy resources (as stated under the Outcome 5 of UNDAF 2015-2019 for Bosnia and Herzegovina). Furthermore, this project will contribute to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. Preparations of NCs represent an obligation of signatory countries of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and it represent a valuable insight into the efforts that countries are taking to integrate climate change measures to policies, strategies and planning.
The overall objective of this assignment is to provide an updated assessment of climate changes impact on biodiversity of mountain lakes as one of the most neglected and yet eco-system rich areas of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
