Financed by the Government of Switzerland and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Municipal Environmental and Economic Governance (MEG) Project is an intervention in the domain of local governance in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Project’s overall goal is defined as follows: Local governments (LGs), assigned with appropriate competences and finances, have improved their democratic governance, apply sound public policy and performance management systems, and provide public services in an inclusive, effective and efficient manner, particularly those related to economic and environmental sectors. The expected concrete improvements the Project will contribute to are clustered in three outcomes, as follows:
The Project’s territorial focus is on the North-West part of the country (including Una-Sana Canton and Prijedor region) and the North-East region (the wider Doboj-Tuzla area), covering 18 partner LGs: Bihac, Bosanska Krupa, Cazin, Doboj, Gracanica, Gradacac, Gradiška, Kalesija, Kostajnica, Kozarska Dubica, Prijedor, Prnjavor, Sanski Most, Tešanj, Teslic, Tuzla, Velika Kladuša and Žepce.
Duties and Responsibilities
Following the initiative of LGs on the territory of Una-Sana Canton (USC), the Ministry initiated necessary procedures in preparing amendments to the Law on Spatial Planning and Construction and the Law on Legalization of Illegally Built Structures, as a part of the Ministry's 2019 work program. For this purpose, the Ministry organized a meeting with LGs representatives from USC on April 16th, where proposals for legislative amendments were discussed. LGs recognized that the favorable business environment and conditions for increasing investment activity heavily depend on the efficiency in the process of issuing the necessary construction related permits. In addition, the Ministry identified certain areas that need to be improved through its administrative oversight over implementation of these regulations.
It is envisaged that this task will be delivered by the end of July 2019 and the level of effort will not exceed 15 expert days.
Task 2 – Preparation of report and presentation
If necessary, the Consultant may include additional elements in the report. The final content of the report will be defined in agreement with both the Ministry and the MEG Project, after the completion of the Task 1.
