The Green Climate Fund, which was set up in 2010 according United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) by 194 countries, has provided $17.3 million for Bosnia and Herzegovina to invest in renewable and green energy. The donation will help shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy create jobs, and reduce pollution, hopefully quelling the stagnating energy efficiency industry in Bosnia. Bosnia spends 20% of its GDP on energy according to the most recent data from the USAID Energy Investment Activity. (Sarajevo Times)
