In 1996 post-war emergency aid was the dominant form of aid to Bosnia-Herzegovina. In 1997 projects in the sectors of health, water supply, energy and transport made up more than half of its total aid.
The chart gives an idea of the breakdown of that aid. Where did it come from? In the energy sector, the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs approved a grant of US$25 million for the rehabilitation of the main transmission lines and the World Bank gave US$10 million for the rehabilitation of the gas distribution systems.
Other energy projects included emergency power reconstruction by the Canadian CIDA, a district heating project by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland and a power transmission project by the Norwegian NORAD. See CRS note below.
