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.
Results from previous phases:
In the first phase of the project ILDP managed to position itself as an innovative and highly relevant intervention in BiH, supporting the harmonization of local strategic planning and capacity development of local governments. The project facilitated the creation and anchoring of an integrated local development planning methodology (miPRO) serving as a model, country wide.
