Bosnia and Herzegovina - Housing

There is a chronic housing shortage in Bosnia and Herzegovina, since a majority of all homes, and even a few entire towns, were destroyed during the civil war from 1992–1995. Over two million people were forced from their homes druing that time. With the help of international assistance programs, only about half of the nation's refugees and displaced residents were able to return to there homes by 2001. Many existing homes are still in serious need of repair and utilities are not always avaialble.
