Description

Project: Effective Project Management in the Water Sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina: Implementation of the EU tendering procedures BiH applied for the EU membership in February 2016. Hence it will have to wait for the candidacy status, continuation in reforms preconditional for the EU membership is needed. Bosnia and Herzegovina is at an early stage regarding its approximation with European standards. Regarding water management system in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the country still lacks a consistent and harmonized State-level policy on water management that would include implementing legislation, monitoring and river basin management plans. The water management strategy in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina for 2010-2022 is in the process of being implemented. Acts are being drafted to launch the EU water directives but the country’s capacities to implement the water acquis remain insufficient. The existing personnel structure in the water management institutions must be strengthened. Special attention should be paid on the capacity building in the local and cantonal administrative bodies since the development of local personnel makes the basis for sustainable water management. A key to sustainable water resource management is the existence of skilled and well trained personnel in planning, development and management process of infrastructure projects. BiH is in a critical state in this domain, with a poor infrastructure and very low level of management. The EU and other funds are available, but the country suffers from the lack of capacities for their absorption and an effective management for an improvement of the current situation in this sector. Furthermore, obligations coming from Reform Agenda for Bosnia and Herzegovina (2015-2018) are related, among others, to the planning and implementation of infrastructural water sector projects. In order to be able to utilize EU funds it is necessary to follow the EU tendering procedures .

They will visit existing waste water treatment plants or buildings under construction and during the third trip they will lead the planned training and media conference. In addition, a study tour will be organised for 7 BIH experts to Slovakia, focused on learning from the Slovak experience regarding the construction and management of waste water treatment plants, financing of investments and project management, based on EU provisions and directives.
