The disaster that struck Bosnia and Herzegovina in May 2014 affected a quarter of the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina and approximately one million people, which is approximately 27% of the country’s population. Over 50% of local governments in the country were in some form affected by the event, with substantial damages recorded to the housing stock, infrastructure, vital service providers, and the country’s productive assets. The effect of the disaster on the most vulnerable merely exacerbated pre-existing problems and disproportionately impacted their lives. Nowhere was this exhibited more than in the case of returnees and those internally displaced.

In the aftermath of the disaster, the international community reacted swiftly, providing emergency and humanitarian assistance, as well as convening a donor conference in July 2014, pledging substantial funds for the rebuilding of the country. The first comprehensive recovery effort to hit the ground was the Flood Recovery Programme financed by the European Union (EU FRP), rolled out in August 2014 and spearheaded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina, along with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Despite the intervention’s impressive outreach, with more than 610,000 people assisted, there remains a significant number of the most vulnerable yet to recover; UNDP estimates place that number at around 20,000 households that require further assistance in the form of durable housing solutions or livelihood support. With national and international recovery efforts winding down, the remaining caseload is largely left to its own limited capacities to self-recover.
Against this background, and acting on behalf of the European Union, as the principle donor, UNDP will be implementing a targeted recovery intervention across Bosnia and Herzegovina aimed at reaching out to the most vulnerable households within the most heavily affected communities. By the end of the Project, the following results are expected to be achieved:

Socially and economically vulnerable households, rendered homeless by the 2014 disaster, provided with new homes;
Socially and economically vulnerable households, residing in disaster-affected substandard housing, benefit from restored and improved homes;
Livelihoods needs identified, enabling tailoring of income generation support for housing assistance beneficiaries;
Vulnerable households benefit from a steady and sustainable income stream.
Under the direct supervision of the Project Manager, the Livelihoods Officer will be responsible for overall coordination of livelihoods activities, direct management of support to livelihoods beneficiaries, regular communication and administration, and monitoring and quality assurance of the activities in close coordination with relevant team members.
