Prepared by: E.Kupusović
The total annual water
resources from
precipitation in BiH amount
to
63.9 km3/yr,
internal renewable water
resources amount to
36.4 km3/yr.
The total internal renewable water
resources per capita in BiH are
9,279 m3/capita per year
(the population of BiH is estimated at
3,839,737

Basin (38.719 km2 or 75,7% of total
B&H surface area) and the
 Adriatic Sea Basin (12.410 km2 or 24,3%).
 Danube
 The
average annual runoff from the Sava River
basin amounts to 722 m3/s or 62,5%, while the
runoff from the Adriatic Sea basin amounts to
433 m3/s or 37,5 %. The two main river basins
are composed from seven main river catchment
areas
Danube basin
Adriatic
Sea basin
 The
institutional structure in BiH is
complex, with two entities (FB&H and RS),
10 Cantons within FB&H, and
municipalities. As a result,
responsibilities for water management
and policies exist at numerous
government levels
 The BiH Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic
Relations, responsible for coordination of
activities and harmonization of plans between
entities’ governments bodies
 The two entities’ Ministries (Ministries of
Agriculture, Water Management and Forestry)
play a major role in managing waters in B&H.
Thea are each responsible for elaborating
their respective Water Laws and Water
Management Strategies
 Sava
River Basin District Agency, Sarajevo (FBiH
 Adriatic Sea River Basin District Agency,
Mostar (FBiH)
 Water Agency for Sava River District – Bijeljina
(RS)
 Water Agency for Trebišnjica River District –
Trebinje (RS)
 Monitoring
systems for surface waters
have been re-established in B&H during
last ten years. Water agencies installed
about 90 automatic measuring stations in
the whole territory of B&H

 Hydrological
data are collected and
processed by Federal
Hydrometeorological institute. Currently,
Year book 2009 is under preparation and
it is planned to prepare Year book 2010
this year.

 Improvements
are underway in the form
of a GIS based Water Information system
(ISoW) for both entities, which will serve
as a “backbone” for gathering sector
information for an updated sector
assessment.
 Ever
since the end of the civil war in
1995, sector monitoring systems
involving collection of data about
abstracted water, consumption, losses;
 Currently water utilities are providing to
central institutions available data on the
level of services (water abstraction,
consumption, losses etc.)
Water availability
Components of the Water Balance as
spatially aggregated data on a specific
reporting unit (e.g. RBD
) ??? FBIH,
RS
Point data (individual
measurements within
the specific reporting
unit) ???
•Streamflow (Q) at
selected gauges
•Groundwater level (H)
at selected wells
• General info on rain
gauge stations
Water abstraction
Water use
Total Volume of
freshwater abstraction
(from both SW + GW)
Total Volume of
freshwater abstraction
for public water supply
systems (from both SW
+ GW)
Groundwater available
for annual abstraction
Evaporation Losses
(during transport and
use)
Volume of freshwater
(from both SW + GW)
used per large item
(based on 3 classes
categorization for cities,
industries and
agricultural
units)
