For this reason, a project  ,,Chemicals and waste under sponsorship of UN Sustainable Development Program  2030: Building capacity for sustainable development goals and review in transitional countries,’’ has started last year. The project will last until June 2019, and will be implemented by the Agency for statistics in BIH, as a carrier of the Project in BiH and UN Environment and UN-Habitat, in corporation with relevant Bosnian institutions and organizations.

Expected results of this project are that our country will create national report regarding chemicals and waste statistics. This report will serve for implementing support for sustainable development goals, define and test statistic’s methodologies of indicators for following its realization.
