Presentation of methodology for creating a participatory budgeting for cities and municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina

On 26 April 2018 the development project of the Czech Republic "Participatory Budgeting in Bosnia and Herzegovina"  conference was held at the Hotel Saraj, where a new methodology was introduced for creating a participative budget for cities and municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

 

At the conference was presented the experience gained during the implementation of the project "Participatory Budgeting in Bosnia and Herzegovina" implemented by the Czech non-governmental organization AGORA in cooperation with the local organization of the Association of Election Officials of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the municipalities of Breza, East Ilidza and Kresevo within the framework of the Transformation Cooperation Program of the Ministry Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.

Ambassador Skalník stated in his speech at the conference that "participatory budgeting is a new tool both for municipalities and for citizens, and its goal is to find solutions to individual problems in a given community in the form of concrete projects. This approach helps to overcome the rooted notion that participation in public affairs by citizens is unimaginable".

The positive results of the three municipalities, in which this pilot project concept was introduced, raised interest in other municipalities for participatory budgeting.

From the Transitional Co-operation Program of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic over the past 7 years, approximately 25 projects were implemented by Czech organizations in cooperation with partner organizations of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The aim is to share the Czech experience in promoting human rights and democracy.
