GoAL WaSH - Regulatory Framework for Water Supply and Waste Water Tariffing

Weak economic governance and poor infrastructure caused by years of bad maintenance in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s water sector prevent satisfactory delivery and long-term sustainability of water services.

The key challenge in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s water sector is the lack of financial sustainability of water utility companies. As a result, water utilities are incapable of investing in equipment, infrastructure maintenance or development. They also lack performance-based management systems and rarely assess public satisfaction with their services.
