The Integrated Local Development Project (ILDP), as an integral pillar of the UNDP Rural and Regional Development Sector, provides support to help strengthen local development planning and the realisation of local strategies in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project approach provides a “bridge” between the strategic and budgetary frameworks of local and higher levels of government and also provides assistance to local governments to design their integrated local strategies and to successfully implement them in partnership with their communities.
Located in eastern BiH, the Birač region covers geographically coherent territories of Bratunac, Milići, Srebrenica, Šekovići, Vlasenica and Zvornik municipalities. Although it is endowed with abundant natural resources, the region is faced with great development challenges, which stem from the devastating consequences of the 1992-1995 war and thereafter difficult overall socio-economic transition.
The project aims to contribute to the reduction of economic, social, and regional disparities in BiH through the affirmation of the Via Dinarica as a regional tourism destination and increase BiH’s competitiveness in nature-based tourism.
