An ecosystem-based approach to flooding in the Vrbas River Basin

21 Sep 2016, UNDP Bosnia and Herz

In the Vrbas River Basin of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), the cumulative effects of deforestation prepared the ground for extensive flooding in 2014. By improving flood forecasting and early warning systems, a UNDP project is working to ensure governments of BiH and the communities of the Vrbas River Basin are able to establish climate resilient flood management.
