MDG-F Focus Country Initiative
The Office of the UN Resident Coordinator in BiH is participating in the MDG-F Focus Country Initiative in the areas of Monitoring and Evaluation and Communication-Advocacy, a three-year $500,000 programme designed for development and implementation of innovative and effective initiatives in addressing the MDGs.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of nine countries from different regions of the world selected in 2009 to receive additional support for the rigorous implementation of the advocacy and communication and monitoring and evaluation strategies at the national level.
The rationale behind allocating this extra support is to stimulate creative and innovative interventions related to both Advocacy and M&E that can be highlighted as exemplary cases of collective action and impact on issues of poverty and the MDGs.
