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.
