Civil Society Sustainability Project


The EU accession process promotes active participation of CSOs in decision-making processes, however, the authorities in BiH do not see the civil society as the main partner, or do not consider the civil society as a legitimate representative of citizens, who hold their elected representatives accountable for the adoption and implementation of public policies. The main assumption is that only a strong and effective civil society, which advocates solving the problems of a large number of citizens, brings increased participation of citizens in decision-making processes.

The Project "Resource Center for BiH Civic Society in EU Integrations“


Overall objective of the project is to contribute towards the increasing of Civic Society Organizations (CSOs) involvement in BiH's decision-making processes, in particular regarding BiH's EU accession process, which will be achieved through strengthening CSOs' capacities (including civic activists) to become competent, independent and sector-recognized actors in the forthcoming BiH and EU negotiation processes. In this way, we will directly strengthen BiH's position on the road to the EU integrations. Throughout the entire process, our intention is to improve the institutional framework in BiH, specifically speaking about the need to further develop CSOs and their effective cooperation with BiH institutions.  The Project "Resource Center for BiH Civic Society in EU Integrations’, will be implemented in a partnership between the Centers for Civic Initiatives (CCI) and the Agency for Cooperation, Education and Development (ACED). The Project is supported by the European Union through the Delegation of the European Union to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The total amount of funding available for this project is 500,000 EUR. The project will be implemented during the period October 10, 2018 - October 9, 2022. Read more

Strengthening the integral agriculture production in order to decrease unemployment and substitute imports in processing industry


The project focuses on connecting agricultural producers and the food industry in the area of the City of Bijeljina. By implementing various activities, we will connect agricultural producers with their customers, supporting them simultaneously with transfer of knowledge, quality seeds, irrigation system and fertilization of crops, as well as means of protection. On a concrete example, the project will show that good business and employment opportunities in agriculture exist in our communities, and that they can be used with the cooperation and entrepreneurial approach of all stakeholders. Project good practice will be institutionalized in order to systematically and sustainably assist citizens in future agricultural business initiatives, and not to wait for a job at the employment office as they do now. The project will be implemented in the territory of the City of Bijeljina, and the leader of the project is the Association “Centres for Civic Initiatives” (CCI). The project partners are the City of Bijeljina, the Employment Bureau of the Republic of Srpska - Bijeljina Branch Office, Sava Semberija d.o.o. Bijeljina, and the Adult Education Institution "Dositej" from Bijeljina. The project is supported by the International Labor Organization (ILO) and co-financed by the City of Bijeljina. The total value of the project is 215,914 EUR. The implementation period is September 1, 2017 - January 01, 2019. Read more

Strengthening the responsibility of BiH authorities in implementation of reforms


Although political leaders have expressed full determination to implement the structural reforms (through Reform Agenda and obligations under the EU integration), reforms in BiH are implemented selectively and too slowly. The authorities are attempting to statistically present the results – they count adopted reforming measures, but they miss to notice the social reality shown through stagnating living standard, bad business conditions, fall of investments, growth of poverty and more and more intense emigration from the country (and not only of the young citizens). At the same time, for main planned reforms (described in Reform agenda and corresponding Action plans) there are no indicators for measuring the outcome or effects, which disables the objective assessment of advance and addressing the responsibility of competent authorities (in institutions, per individuals and political parties). Without measurable indicators and facts, public debate comes down to statistical form and political quarreling.     With implementation of this project the CCI wishes to contribute to strengthening the accountability of BiH authorities in implementing the reforms and solving the existential problems of citizens.  Period of project implementation is 01.08.2017. do 28.02.2019 and the donor is the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in BiH.  Project Budget is 152.420 KM.
