    Bosnia and Herzegovina does not have countrywide disaster risk reduction ( strategic frameworks that ensure the integration of risk reduction into relevant development (including sectoral) policies across government levels As a result, DRR has not been truly mainstreamed into various sectors, norms, standards and regulations necessary to manage and reduce risk, while existing policies and legislation still focus on rescue and relief activities Disaster Risk Management ( in the country is affiliated with constructing flood defences and reinforcing or upgrading infrastructure, with most efforts invested in strengthening capacities for disaster management The country has established DRR platforms at state and entity levels, which have aimed to serve as multistakeholder mechanisms for coordination and policy guidance on DRR since 2011 However, these are not yet fully functional and remain detached from DRR related policy design and delivery, especially at municipal level Although the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015 2030 recommends that DRR platforms have multilevel and multistakeholder composition, and pursue an all of society engagement in DRR, many sectors remain excluded from DRR exchange in the country (e g health, education, social protection, urban planning, agriculture) In addition, at the local level, there are no functional DRR platforms, which affects coordination in this domain The current Technical Cooperation Programme ( project complemented part of FAO’s activities within the Joint Programme ,,“Disaster Risk Reduction for Sustainable Development in Bosnia and Herzegovina 2018 2020 (UNJP/ 011 / which is supported and financed by the Government of Switzerland and the United Nations ( and implemented by the UN agencies United Nations Development Programme ( United Nations Children's Fund ( United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization ( United Nations Population Fund ( and FAO, in partnership with domestic authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina The long term programme vision entails functional DRR governance across various levels and sectors in the country, conducted in three phases The first programme phase was designed as a platform for further horizontal scaling up of a good DRR model at the local level, as well as a springboard to a bottom up strengthening of a countrywide DRR governance framework and capacities.
