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.
