Water sector legislation is quite similar in all of the Western Balkan countries, with the exception of Croatia due to its direct implementation of the key EU directive. The water sector is regulated at the state level in all countries, except in BiH where the entity governments are responsible for adoption of legislation, planning and development of the sector. There are no direct references within policies which link climate change in general, or climate change in mountain regions specifically, to water management. However, water legislation deals with water-related natural disasters such as flooding, which can be associated with climate change in certain cases.
