The EU-funded Regional Programme on Local Democracy in the Western Balkans (ReLOaD) aims to strengthen partnerships between local governments (LGs) and civil society by scaling-up a successful model of transparent and project-based funding of CSOs. The Western Balkan (WB) countries are facing complex set of similar development challenges. These countries, namely Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, FYR Macedonia, Kosovo* , Montenegro, and Serbia, invest significant efforts to mainstream the EU accession agenda within their socio-political contexts. An integral part of the EU accession agenda is to promote the inclusion of civil society and further development of participatory democracies in the Region. All the WB countries face these challenges, specifically related to the lack of collaboration between the government and civil society.

The ReLOaD in BiH will focus on institutionalization of interaction between LGs and CSOs.
