The project will therefore build capacities and solve problems, by consolidating the approach in the years to come.

The main target group of this project are the 40 local CSOs and grassroots organizations from Bosnia and Herzegovina and 12 Local self-government units – municipal administration and local councilors as local decision makers.

Overall objective of the project is to strengthen the capacities of CSOs engaged in public policy processes to become skilled and reliable partners in policy-making and reform processes in B&H.

Specific objectives: 

  1. Create stronger links to citizens by engaging in public policy process, reaching out to society as a whole including marginalized groups and grass root communities and encouraging civic activism and public participation in policy-making;
  2. Capable, transparent and accountable LAs;
  3. Effective CSOs;
  4. LAs have enabling policies and rules for grass root organizations and civic initiatives;
  5. CSOs create network for coalition-building for increased impact in campaigning and advocacy.

The whole process will involve about 20 local communities benefiting from improved public services in each municipality; around 12 LAs will have strengthened capacities to implement inclusive solutions for local problems; more than 40 CSOs will have improved skills and capacities for bringing positive local changes in their communities.
