The consultancy will take place within the third phase of the Integrated Local Development Project (ILDP), a joint project of the Government of Switzerland and UNDP. For nearly 10 years, the Project has been working in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to systematize strategic planning and development management at sub-national levels in the country. Since its launch in 2008, the ILDP has been progressively growing, both in terms of scope of work, as well as conceptual approaches applied to advance strategic planning in the BiH.
As part of its activities at the local level, the ILDP supports development and implementation of roaming dogs’ management plans in a number of local communities in BiH which have been faced with the problem of oversized roaming dogs’ population in the past 10 years.
Oversized roaming dogs’ population has an impact on human security in many terms, such as zoonosis, bites and traffic accidents and thus this issue requires a systemic approach. The issue with high numbers of roaming dogs particularly escalated upon adoption of BIH Law on Protection and Animal Welfare in February 2009. The Law prevents unselected catching and euthanasia of roaming cats and dogs, placing responsibility for establishment and running the shelters and hygienic services to local communities. Unfortunately, just a small number of local communities have established the above-mentioned shelters for abandoned animals and latest reviews conducted by the BIH Veterinary Office indicate that there is a need for improvement of shelters’ functioning.
The BIH Veterinary Office is responsible for monitoring the work of shelters and issuing certificates for commercial transport of dogs to EU counties. This requires ensuring that animals are properly and on time vaccinated against rabies, healthy and well socialized so that they can be safely adopted in EU countries. Transfer and adoption abroad, together with other measures in BIH local communities such as promotion of responsible ownership, promotion of local adoption of roaming dogs and free sterilization should result in reduction in the number of dogs in the streets and consequently reduce risk for human health and property and improved animal welfare.
Considering the above, this ToR aim at assessing relevant regulations and conditions in the BiH shelters, which should then result in in recommendation for improvement that need to be undertaken. Such assessment, followed by development and delivery of training for shelters staff, will enable the staff to better use available but limited resources and manage shelter in line with international standards and protocols.
Duties and Responsibilities
The Consultant is expected to support the BIH Veterinary Office in improving the level of animal welfare in the shelters for abandoned dogs in the country and increasing the number of adopted dogs from these shelters. Specific tasks include:
