The agricultural season in Bosnia and
Herzegovina (BH) begins earlier than in most European
countries, shipping costs are relatively low, and land and
labor prices are more favorable than in other southern
European countries. As a result, the country's
agriculture sector should be well positioned to compete on
the export markets. With 20.6 percent of all employed in BH,
agriculture remains an important sector for employment,
despite a decline in the working-age population in rural
areas. Additionally, it will be important for BH to develop
well-functioning land institutions, so that the land market
can operate more efficiently and thus enable business
development. Finally, BH should integrate climate change
adaptation and environmental sustainability into
agricultural policies, programs, and investments. To succeed
in agriculture, producers and governments will have to
adapt, and the way to start is to focus on reducing
agriculture's vulnerability to current climate variability.
