Evaluation of “Strengthening Associations of Municipalities and Cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina” Project

Final Report


The Strengthening Associations of Municipalities and Cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina project (2017-2021) aims to strengthen the two associations ability to support their members’ rights. The project was jointly financed by the Governments of Sweden and Switzerland and implemented by SALAR/SKL International, the Association of Municipalities and Cities of Republika Srpska (RS AMC) and the Association of Municipalities and Cities of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH AMC). The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the project’s success, sustainability, and implementation of cross-cutting issues; contribute to learning and serve as an input to a potential continuation of the project. The evaluation found that the AMCs have increased their competencies in several key and prioritised thematic areas and are increasingly part of the national political dialogue and advocating for their members’ rights. They have however struggled to define, monitor and evaluate their strategies, not developed a plan to become more financially sustainable or been able to ensure that the implementation of the project has taken into account the cross-cutting issues.
