Through its project work and donor coordination, our Embassy is working with stakeholders, including civil society and other citizens’ groups, to support Bosnia in dealing with the consequences of this year’s devastating floods. This includes building on existing community cooperation. More widely, the UK considers that joining the EU would be the most effective way for Bosnia to progress towards a more united and prosperous country. The UK has consistently demonstrated leadership within the EU in encouraging Bosnia to make progress on meeting the criteria necessary for EU accession.
