DISASTER RISK REDUCTION AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
JOINT SWISS UN PROGRAMME
The Joint Swiss-UN Programme "Reducing Disaster Risk in Bosnia and Herzegovina for Sustainable Development" will support Bosnian citizens, especially the most vulnerable categories and
high-risk local communities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, to prepare and adapt to the risks of disasters, and strikes in different sectors of development. The program will introduce and operationalize an integrated risk management and disaster risk management model at the local level to initiate disaster risk management from lower to higher levels of
government. At the same time, the program will facilitate the affirmation of the "model" of the system of preparedness and prevention at the local level with the potential of spreading throughout the country. The "Reducing Disaster Risk for Sustainable Development in Bosnia and Herzegovina" is a joint program of the Government of Switzerland and the United Nations (UN) worth 7.1 million KM. UN agencies responsible for its implementation: the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations Food and Agriculture (FAO) in partnership with local authorities.
