The heaviest rainfall in recorded history caused widespread floods and some 2,000 landslides across Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in May 2014, destroying everything in their path and affecting one-quarter of the country’s population. Bridges, roads and other infrastructure were damaged extensively. The U.S. Government, primarily through the USAID Flood Recovery Initiative, has committed a total $14.7 million to provide for immediate humanitarian needs, including rescue boats, and help citizens rebuild their lives, rehabilitate community infrastructure, restart businesses and restore agricultural production. Most of USAID’s flood recovery activities are focused on the most flood-affected municipalities of Doboj, Maglaj and Samac.

Eighteen years after the end of the war, the political situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) remains tense at all levels of society in all local communities, which remain largely segregated by ethnicity. School-age children from the country’s two entities, Republika Srpska and the Federation of BiH, rarely have the opportunity to travel and meet children from municipalities or entities other than their own.

Bosnia and Herzegovina signed and ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities in 2010, but has made little progress in implementing it. People with disabilities represent one of the most vulnerable and hidden groups in the country. With no structured state system of social care or community-based services, they and their families have nowhere to turn for support. They are wrongly viewed as incapable of participating in everyday life and excluded from society and, worse, are often placed in institutions that are located in remote areas and further removed from society. This is not in the spirit of the Convention.
