Extensive citizen-focused consultations on the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals was launched in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2016 as part of the umbrella initiative “Imagine2030”, conceived by the UN in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in which more than 3,000 people were involved up to the present moment and which continues to be a major advocacy tool for raising awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals were formally presented in April 2017 when a high-level conference on the Agenda 2030 was organized by the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, after which institutions were appointed to implement the 2030 Agenda process at the level of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republic of Srpska, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Brčko District. At its 95th session held on March 22, 2017, the Council of Ministers of BiH tasked the BiH Directorate for Economic Planning with the development of the Action Plan and the Roadmap for Achieving Sustainable Development Goals in Bosnia and Herzegovina, while appointing the Federal Institute for Development Programming in front of the Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ministry for European Integration and International Cooperation in front of the Government of Republic of Srpska, and representatives of the Government of the Brčko District of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

PSubsequently, an intergovernmental working group was formed to support the preparation of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and to design a Road Map for the Sustainable Development Goals in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Comprehensive support for the process of initiating the implementation of Agenda 2030 in Bosnia and Herzegovina is provided by the United Nations in cooperation with, and with financial assistance from, the Government of Sweden.

Most of 2018 was devoted to extensive stakeholder consultations (consultations with more than 250 public, private, and non-governmental sector representatives in June 2018 and a conference with more than 400 private sector representatives), as well as developing analytical and technical bases for the need to develop two key documents of Bosnia and Herzegovina: the first Voluntary National Review and the Framework for Sustainable Development Goals in Bosnia and Herzegovina. At the end of 2018, three sub-groups were formed within the working group to support the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Sub-group for the preparation of the content proposal for the BiH Voluntary National Review on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals;
  • Sub-group for the preparation of the content proposal for the SDG Framework in BiH;
  • Sub-group for data/statistics.

The first Voluntary National Review (VNR) of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals was drafted and presented at the United Nations High Level Political Forum in July 2019. Through the presentation of the VNR, representatives of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Government of the Republic of Srpska, and the Government of the Brčko District have expressed their support and willingness for all levels of government in Bosnia and Herzegovina to contribute fully to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Work on the development of the Framework for Sustainable Development Goals under the above sub-group was initiated in late 2018, while the first draft of the document, with the support of the Government of Sweden, the United Nations, and the United Nations Development Program, was drafted in May 2019. The first draft of the document was the subject of an extensive multisectoral consultations held in June, involving more than 200 representatives of institutions from all levels of government in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as representatives of the non-governmental and private sectors and academia. An additional round of consultations was then held with representatives of the institutions of the Republic of Srpska (July 2019), Bosnia and Herzegovina (September 2019), and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Brčko District of Bosnia and Herzegovina (September – October 2019).

Following consultations and proposals and recommendations received on proposed development paths for all levels of government in Bosnia and Herzegovina and their respective accelerators, drivers, and sub-goals, the sub-group for the preparation of the content proposal for the SDG Framework in BiH produced a second version of the document.
