EBRD to provide loan to improve water infrastructure in Banja Luka

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has agreed to provide loan for the upgrade of water and wastewater infrastructure of Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

A loan of up to €6m ($7.09m) is being provided under the EBRD Green Cities framework.

EBRD’s Green Cities framework focuses on addressing environmental and sustainability concerns by investing in municipal infrastructure, energy and policy measures.

With a population of 200,000, Banja Luka is the second-largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and to ensure that the people living in this region have better access to water, a Green Cities Action Plan has been developed by the city and the EBRD.
