The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and Sweden are supporting Bosnia and Herzegovina’s efforts to upgrade its solid waste management infrastructure. A EUR 2.5 million investment grant, extended by Sweden, will complement a EUR 5 million EBRD loan, approved in 2019, for the construction of a regional solid-waste landfill site in Tuzla canton. Once completed, the new landfill will serve three municipalities, Zivinice, Banovici and Kladanj, with a total population of around 95,000. It will help reduce water and soil pollution and lower emissions of greenhouse gases. The construction of the new landfill site, which is currently underway, is being managed by regional solid-waste company Eko-Sep.
