Bosnia and Herzegovina updates its first NDC

21 Apr 2021

Bosnia and Herzegovina has updated its first Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). The country plans to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2030 by 12.8% compared to 2014 (or 33.2% compared to 1990) using its domestic resources (unconditional target) and by 17.5% compared to 2014 (or 36.8% compared to 1990) with international support (conditional target). Bosnia and Herzegovina’s previous GHG emissions reduction target for 2030 was 3% compared to 1990.

In the long run, the country’s GHG emissions reduction target for 2050 is 50% (unconditional goal) and 55% (conditional goal) compared to 2014 (61.7% unconditional reduction and 65.6% conditional reduction compared to 1990).

To reach the defined targets, the country plans to invest BAM17bn (€8.8bn) in the period until 2030 to decarbonise its power sector. The total electricity capacity is around 4.6 GW, with 48% from hydro, 45% from lignite, and 5% from oil (end of 2019, stable in 2020).
