MZ Newsletter No.1 - Civic Activism
We present you the first issue of MZ Newsletter. The project Strengthening the Role of Local Communities – MZ in BiH is a joint project of the Government of Switzerland and the Government of Sweden and it is implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with the national authorities. The objective of the project is to increase the democratic and direct participation of citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the local governance, strengthen responsibilities of municipal authorities and improve the infrastructure and services at the level of local communities (MZ), which requires the modernization and redefinition of the role of the local community in BiH, and creation of stable and functional governance model. Thanks to the partners, the Government of Switzerland and the Government of Sweden, which are making longterm investments in this country, we work patiently and innovatively on this project on changing the mind-set and the development of civic activism.
