The Regional Programme on Local Democracy in the Western Balkans (ReLOaD) aims to strengthen participatory democracies and the EU integration process in the Western Balkans by empowering civil society to actively take part in decision making and by stimulating an enabling legal and financial environment for civil society. The Project builds on and scales up the experiences of the Reinforcement of Local Democracy (LOD) project implemented in Bosnia and Herzegovina by UNDP and supported by the European Union (EU). As a regional initiative, the project will be implemented throughout the following countries/territories: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. Specifically, the project objective is to strengthen partnerships between local governments and civil society in the WB by scaling-up a successful model of transparent and project-based funding of CSOs from local government budgets towards greater civic engagement in decision-making and improvement of local service delivery. ReLOaD will focus on institutionalizing the interaction between local governments and CSOs, while strengthening capacities of all relevant stakeholders to engage more productively in such partnerships. The underlying intention is to replicate and sustain a transparent, development-oriented and project-based approach to funding of CSOs by municipal budgets that contributes to realization of legitimate local priorities in line with local development strategies, thereby expanding local governments-CSO relations and improve quality of CSO services.
