Based on a request from the Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Presidency, the “Dialogue for the Future (DFF)” joint initiative established a set of peacebuilding standards, networks and tools around the country during 2014-2016, creating a space for cross-cutting dialogue, reconciliation and building of trust. Following the DFF Project outcomes, the BiH Presidency requested the UN Secretary-General for a subsequent round of DFF interventions in BiH, while also expanding to the Sub-Region (BiH, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia). The DFF 2 Project ‘Promoting Social Cohesion and Diversity in BiH’ will be jointly implemented by UNICEF, UNDP and UNESCO for 18 months. The Sub-Regional initiative will involve national partners and UN in BiH, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia.

The BiH DFF 2 Project will provide spaces for dialogue and continued interaction between different groups at the local and national levels, will support collective identification of issues that affect all citizens in BiH; and will contribute to enhanced interaction and collaboration between groups.

The aim will be for the different groups to realize solving problems affecting them all requires working together, and building on the strengths of diversity. The UNDP Project component has a major focus on youth, connecting young opinion-makers, future leaders and key stakeholders with the national leadership and across the neighboring countries, thus linking them to a joint effort with their neighboring countries.

As a part of The Joint UN DFF 2 Project, the UNDP Project component focuses on two major Outcomes:

Outcome 1: Increased interaction and collaboration between different groups at the local level (within and between municipalities):

The Project will seek to address issues related to the lack of interaction and collaboration between the citizens, groups and their local leaders. The issue of inclusiveness of local level governance will be addressed through joint assessments of common problems and based on these, creating dialogue platforms bringing together local leaders as well as civil society, youth, religious leaders, women’s organizations and relevant canton level authorities. These platforms will be established as genuine bases for collaboration and joint problem solving and youth will be given a key role in these dialogue platforms so that they will be empowered to build collaborative leadership skills. Their purpose will be to address issues hindering social cohesion and creating permanent spaces for dialogue.

Outcome 2: Increased interaction and dialogue between different groups at the national level:

The Project will work with youth as the priority target group beyond the selected locations for the local level (Outcome one) in an aim of generating a group of future leaders with an ability to lead collaboratively. Youth will be supported to lead dialogues on issues particularly affecting youth and to engage on both less divisive issues, such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), education and youth emigration; as well as on some of the more contentious issues of political nature. The Presidency believes that youth will need to build their capacity to engage politically now to be able to become consensus-builders and future generation of leaders. The Project will generate opportunities for the youth to engage with the Presidency and their advisors during the Project implementation.

Under the direct supervision of the Project Manager, the Dialogue for the Future (DFF) Project Assistant will provide programmatic and administrative assistance in implementation of all Project related activities and programmes as well as in maintaining regular communication with all project beneficiaries and local stakeholders including government counterparts, the non-governmental (NGO) sector, the academia, international community and local governments, both in BiH and the region. He/she will support interventions related to all Project components by closely working with the project’s partners, in line with the project document and action plans. Furthermore, the DFF Project Assistant will provide finance, monitoring and reporting support for activities implemented in locations of project implementation.
