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.

Youth are an enormous resource for development and a key component for peace and stability in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Decisions they make and opportunities they have for education, training, employment, and civic participation will affect their country’s development outcome for years to come. But youth face significant challenges to participating in democratic and economic processes in BiH. USAID supports BiH youth from different ethnic backgrounds through a spectrum of activities to engage them in developing their communities and country.
