Rebuilding Together

EU solidarity with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia

Regional Conference for Floods Prevention and Management in Western Balkans
24 November 2014, Brussels

In July 2014, the European Commission, France and Slovenia convened an International Donors’ Conference in Brussels to respond to the consequences of severe weather and devastating floods that hit Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia in May. As one of the conclusions, participants agreed to organise a follow-up event with a focus on how to improve policy, infrastructures and regional governance in the field flood prevention and management.

International donors' conference for Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia after the floods
16 July 2014, Brussels

The European Commission hosted a Donors' Conference in Brussels on 16 July to mobilise further support to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia in the aftermath of the recent floods.  The conference was co-organised with France and Slovenia.

International donor countries, international financial institutions, and main relevant civil society organisations were invited.  The aim of the conference was to collect pledges from donors for the countries' recovery from the recent floods. The European Commission, France and Slovenia place high priority on the economic recovery of both countries and are committed to providing a substantial financial contribution. In addition to mobilising international financial support, the Donors' Conference will also contribute to stepping up co-operation over floods and natural disasters in the region.

Upon the requests of Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, suffering the worst floods in over a century, the European Union is providing coordinated assistance through its Civil Protection Mechanism. The vast majority of EU Member States have already offered assistance and new offers keep coming in. Read more...

The European Commission is working to provide further support for the two countries for the reconstruction of affected areas using its pre-accession funds (IPA) and, in the case of Serbia, the EU Solidarity Fund.
