Concerns about environmental damage by dams in Bosnia

Protesters say more power stations will force farmers from their land.

    There has been a boom in the number of hydropower projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    But, new construction projects are facing protests for their effect on the environment and the livelihoods of people.
