Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) - Bosnia & Herzegovina, 2020-2025

Speeches Shim

Over the course of five years, the USAID mission in BiH expects to refocus civil society on building constituencies and increasing the active roles that men and women, youth, and members of marginalized groups take in their communities and in political life. As a result, an increasing number of reform champions in government will have made tangible progress on reforms needed for the country’s further Euro-Atlantic integration. One visible aspect of this progress will be BiH’s return to Tier 1 status in the State Department’s Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report. Members of the diaspora will be visible not only in business but in community development initiatives and philanthropic ventures as well. As a result of our partnership with the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation, increased access to transparent financing will be evident through increased economic growth. All of these efforts will begin to constitute new power centers that can compete with entrenched corrupt interests.
