There are three Aarhus Centres in Bosnia and Herzegovina: the first Aarhus Centre opened in Sarajevo in 2012. One year later, in 2013, it was followed by the Aarhus Centres in Tuzla and Banja Luka. The Aarhus Centres support Bosnia and Herzegovina in reporting on the national implementation of the Aarhus Convention as well as on boosting the citizen-state-private sector interaction. They also focus on participatory local governance and organize activities related to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).         

  • Aarhus Centre Banja Luka

    The main goal of the Aarhus Centre Banja Luka is to promote the implementation of the Convention in BiH and liaise between public institutions and the community, especially at the local level.

  • Aarhus Centre Sarajevo

    In Sarajevo, the Centre promotes good environmental governance, through improved access to environmental information, increased public participation in decision-making and strengthened rule of law through access to justice in environmental matters.
  • Aarhus Centre Tuzla

    The main aim of the Aarhus Centre Tuzla is to improve the implementation of the Aarhus Convention and be the link between public authorities and the wider community, especially at the local level.
