UNDP has been implementing programmes in Bosnia and Herzegovina for over a decade. The decisions it made in the selection of programme interventions were initially guided by the dynamics of post-conflict reconstruction. Strengthening institutions at the state and entity levels, and reconstruction and local development priorities at the municipal level, provided opportunities as well as challenges. The challenges in the area of reconstruction have been to ensure transparency and accountability in the rehabilitation process, which should be inclusive and employ an approach that contributes to more integrated public and political institutions. Building and strengthening institutions at the state level involves working with entities and cantons and redistributing competencies. In the area of governance and social equity, UNDP has the comparative advantage of being able to inform the development of national strategies, and it responded to the opportunity to ensure that development planning and programmes are responsive to local needs through engagement at the municipality level.
