This project, Via Dinarica: A Platform for Sustainable Tourism Development and Local Economic Growth, is a follow-up to our Via Dinarica pilot project, “Walking the Via Dinarica,” that was also co-led by USAID and UNDP, in 2013-2014. As a result of last year’s project, the Via Dinarica was awarded “Best New Trail” in 2014 by Outside Magazine. This activity will further develop the Via Dinarica into a regional tourism destination, which will increase BiH competitiveness in nature-based tourism and promote rural economic development. The activity will establish the Via Dinarica corridor in BiH as a community-owned and -operated tourism product that provides sustainable livelihoods for a range of local businesses along the trail.
The main objectives of USAID’s Energy Investment Activity are to help the country attract investment and create jobs in the energy sector. Through this activity, USAID works to revise and align the permitting processes for construction of electricity generation facilities, so they are consistent, transparent and investor friendly throughout the country.
