USAID/ Bosnia -Herzegovina is seeking partnership(s) with other donors to implement a new Local Government Support Activity (LGSA) and solicits comments from all stakeholders on the draft concept note. The overall goal of LGSA is to strengthen local government’s ability to deliver public services.
Fifteen years after a brutal war, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) still must ensure political stability, foster a national identity, and create a single economic space. BiH struggles to perform basic governmental functions and has not transitioned to full sovereignty given the remaining outstanding conditions needed for closure of the Office of the High Representative (OHR). OHR is an ad hoc international institution created by the Dayton Peace Accords (DPA) and responsible for overseeing the implementation of civilian aspects of the DPA which ended the war in BiH.
