|Objectives and results of the action||Experiences in environmental law in Bosnia and Herzegovina are rather weak. Huge opposition to hydro projects coming from the communities, CSOs, experts and the general public cannot be enough to stop those projects if they will not be legally challenged. As the main results of this project we see an increase of the interest for the legal fights.
Current subsidy system contributes to the on-going hydropower boom that entails four direct threats to the conservation targets identified above. The project envisages two results to address the main factor identified and consequently, direct threats:
Result 1 Increased knowledge of environmental lawyers related to hydro projects.
· Result 2 Slowed down or stopped at least five hydro projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina through legal procedures.
