An example of good practice through partnership

Wishing to support job creation, the Government of Switzerland supported a project for the construction of a logistical center for craftsmen and for small and medium-sized agribusiness entrepreneurs in the Osrdak business building in Posusje in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was implemented by UNDP. The center was established in order to develop small entrepreneurships and to assist craftsmen and agricultural entrepreneurs in performing technological processing and in the storage of their products, using energy from renewable sources for their own needs. In cooperation with the Association for Economic Development READAH (a regional development agency), the center provides extension services to agricultural entrepreneurs and marketing advisory services to start-up entrepreneurs.
