In parallel with development of modern society there are growing numbers and types of risks modern society is facing. One type of these risks is transboundary pollution of the environment and its components, soil, air and water. Effort of the states to cope with the pollution within their territories is insufficient due to the fact that pollution arises and spreads everywhere without being restricted to the borders of a single state. For this reason cooperation between the states is necessary to declare standards and mechanisms for its prevention and reduction. This paper analyses transboundary pollution between Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina through three case studies: air pollution in Slavonski Brod caused by emission of harmful substances emitted from Oil Rafinery in Brod, Bosnia and Herzegovina, floods that hit the region in May 2014. and 'seventeenth lake' of Plitvice Lakes National Park due to unsolved wastewater system. In all three cases specific contexts are described in which transboundary pollution occured or is occuring, main social actors involved in problem and its solution with analyses of existing legal documents about the environment, European Union directives and world conventions. Institutional shortcomings of countries are emphasized on the matter of environmental protection, differences between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia and recommendations of international institutions for better environmental management. Complexity of the problem showed that both states need to work on advancement of their environmental policies in practice with highlighting the need for transnational cooperation and better risk management of transboundary pollution.
