The Canton of Sarajevo signed an agreement with the United Nations Development Programme to facilitate mutual participation in the funding for an energy efficiency project. Public buildings will undergo refurbishment worth BAM 1.2 million (EUR 614,000), where the regional authority will provide EUR 358,000, and the international organization took on the responsibility for the remainder.

The project’s concept is based on the structures’ rehabilitation in the energy segment, according to Čedomir Lukić, the cantonal minister responsible for spatial planning, construction and the environment. He said activities include the identification of buildings which urgently need refurbishment measures, with the subsequent development of funding and action plans for the year ahead.

Zahira Virani, UNDP’s deputy resident representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina, stressed that Sweden donated the funds for the Green Economic Development Programme. The segment focused on energy management and efficiency in Sarajevo Canton was agreed one month before the financial deal, she said. The project includes a study, a five-year action plan and 15 audits of selected public buildings. The responsible ministry already chose five structures: three elementary schools, an orphanage and a theatre.
