Text size Aa Aa

Rijad Tikvesa is the President of Sarajevo based environmental NGO Ekotim, in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
His organisation has filed complaints to the Energy Community, against permits granted to build new coal activated thermal power plants in the country.
He believes the Balkan countries’ plans to increase investment in the coal industry is not only a menace for health and the environment across Europe, but also economically not viable.
He spoke with Valerie Gauriat in Sarajevo.

Point of view

The impact on health of pollution from thermal power plants in the region costs 8,5 billion euros per year
