Highlights

Over the past four years, institutions in the social protection system of Republika Srpska (RS) have been actively involved in the implementation of the Joint Swiss - UN Programme1 “Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) for Sustainable Development in Bosnia and Herzegovina“ and have achieved substantial progress in building a crisis-resilient social protection system in BiH.

In coordination with partner UN agencies, UNICEF supported the competent institutions at the entity and local level to implement a component of the Programme dedicated to strengthening the capacity of the social protection system to prepare, respond and recover from crisis situations and forge cross- sector links with other sectors and systems in an integrated model of disaster risk reduction in 5 municipalities and cities in RS (Banja Luka, Bijeljina, Prijedor, Trebinje, Srebrenica), or a total of 10 in BiH.

The experiences and lessons learned in the implementation of these measures have shaped the needs, solutions and the vision for further system improvements in the DRR area sublimated in this Roadmap.

The aim of the Roadmap is to disseminate good practices and experiences to other municipalities and cities in BiH, including investments in systemic DRR integration measures in the social protection sector, by addressing the legislative, strategic and budget frameworks inside the system.

Naučene lekcije i iskustva pri realizaciji tih mjera su oblikovali potrebe, rješenja i viziju daljnjeg unapređenja sistema u oblasti pripreme i otpornosti na krize i vanredne situacije, sublimiranoj u Mapi puta. Cilj Mape puta je širenje dobrih praksi i iskustava i u ostale opštine i gradove u RS uz ulaganje u sistemske mjere integracije DRR-a u sektor socijalne zaštite kroz rad na zakonodavnim, strateškim i budžetskim okvirima sistema.
