The World Bank has approved a $50 million loan to combat this problem in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where air pollution cripples life in many cities during the winter months.
According to the statement published by the World Bank office in Sarajevo, the loan is expected to reduce 19,000 tons of emissions of toxic particles that cause air pollution, by using the loan to renew heating systems and investments to be made in public transportation.
In BiH, air pollution causes at least 3,300 premature deaths each year.
