ELoGE in Bosnia and Herzegovina

ELoGE Programme of the Council of Europe
ELoGE component of the LINK4Cooperation project

LINK 4 Cooperation project, founded by the European Union, 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) in implementing participative processes by implementing the ELoGE Program of the Council of Europe. Together they will identify concrete problems of the community that will find best solutions thanks to the participative approach. The project will therefore build capacities and solve challenges, 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 the project Consortium for implementing ELoGE process, a training for trainers (ToT) will be organized aimed at giving project consortium representatives the skills and tools for setting up, evaluating 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 programe

The project partners aim to raise the awareness on the ELoGE principles in the 12 municipalities and cities 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 12 principles of the Program.

12 municipalities and cities will be engaged in the project and together with the project partners will assess the current situation in their local governments and will identify better solutions for their own impact 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 publicized 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 build the capacities of the the civil society organizations and the local authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This education is shall be provided within the LAP Program of the Council of Europe.
