Bosnia and Herzegovina: Integrated Local Development (ILDP)

Projet terminé

The project is designed in accordance with the existing relevant policy framework in BiH. It will directly enhance the further consolidation of the local planning framework within the overall planning and financial systems of BiH in accordance with EU policies. It will contribute to the implementation of BiH's Country Development Strategy and Social Inclusion Strategy, as well as to the realisation of a wide spectrum of local (municipal) development strategies and of sectoral strategies (line ministries).

In spite of certain progress in strenghtening the strucutres of the country and moving towards the EU integration, still considerable challenges confront BiH. The complex constitutional structures of BiH require that the country-wide strategic planning harmonizes efforts at several institutional levels (state, entities, cantosl and local governments) in order to become more effective and effcient and compatible with EU processes. 


By 2015, local strategic planning system in BiH is further consolidated by enhancing its' vertical integration with higher government planning frameworks, up-scaling its coverage country-wide and strenghtening local governments and their socio-economic partners' development. The impact chain intends to achieve efficient service delivery of LGs and to enhance sustainable inclusive socio-economic development.
