Fast facts - local governance

Jul 8, 2013

The Local Development Programme is about assisting, empowering, and capacitating local authorities to make strategic decisions about life of their citizens in cooperation with local population, taking into account administrative capacities, geographical, economic and social situation and then to implement them. It is also about making local authorities more transparent and more accountable, as well as about developing the ways to execute their tasks and responsibilities effectively and efficiently for the benefit of the population.


  • In 2010 we supported the Ministry of Economy in preparation of the Strategy for Regional Development (2010-2014).
  • We assisted in local development planning and selection of strategic projects in pilot municipalities of Žabljak and Kolašin.
  • We drafted local social inclusion plans for enhancing social services in three pilot municipalities (Bar, Bijelo Polje and Nikšić).
