Social Inclusion and Democratic Governance

The Social Inclusion and Governance Sector assists BiH central, entity and local governments to achieve higher standards of governance effectiveness through better planning, budgeting, provision of public goods to citizens and accountability. By tackling these challenges UNDP influences the policy level, which affects the lives of ordinary citizens and particularly the most vulnerable groups. Through the implementation of more inclusive citizen-centred policies and legislation related to EU accession, the Sector provides support to activities targeting socially excluded groups in rural communities, refugees and IDPs, disabled people, the elderly, Roma, and people living with HIV and tuberculosis. Democratic governance is mainstreamed through the activities of the Social Inclusion and Democratic Governance Sector and is mainly focused on local governance, inclusive citizen-centered policies and legislation related to EU accession.
