LINK 4 Cooperation project promotes principles of good governance with a view to effective and responsive performance of the local government units in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project will empower the capacities of local authorities (elected leaders and civil servants) and civil society in implementing participative processes. Together they will identify concrete problems of the community that will find their solutions thanks to the participative approach. The project will therefore build capacities and solve problems, by consolidating the approach in the years to come.
In that regard, the following activities are the crucial part of the agenda:
Capacity Building Activities: ELoGE training for trainers (ToT)
To ensure the capability of Consortium, a training for trainers (ToT) will be organized aimed at giving project consortium CSOs the skills and tools for setting up and evaluation and monitoring the system for the performance of the Local authorities. This training will be based on the 12 principles of good governance developed by the Council of Europe. The training for trainers will be delivered by external experts delegated by CoE, and the participants will be provided with Certificate of trainers for ELOGE programme.
Capacity Building Activities: assessment of LAs using ELOGE programme
The project partners aim to raise awareness on the ELOGE principles in the municipalities of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The core-project activity is the assessment of the local governments using the ELOGE program and capacity building of the municipalities with this principle.
12 municipalities will be engaged in the project and together with the project partners will assess the current situation in the municipalities and will identify better solutions for their own common living thanks to implementation of simple and efficient tools and instruments. Thanks to participative processes, it is possible to find ways to address community problems and challenges.
The Assessment will be then printed and distributed in Bosnia and Herzegovina and EU.
The next phase will be a capacity building and coaching module for participative processes in order to train the civil society and the local authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
