trainingThe Coordinated Recovery Needs Assessment following the devastating floods in Bosnia and Herzegovina started today in Sarajevo. This is a joint effort of the United Nations, the World Bank, and EU Member States with the BiH authorities in the lead. A team to coordinate efforts during the Recovery Needs Assessment has been set up by the Delegation of the European Union to Bosnia and Herzegovina/EUSR.


The process was officially initiated with a two-day orientation training (May 29-30), for the representatives of the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina (state level), the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republika Srpska and the Brcko District, as well as international experts from the EU, the UN organisations and the World Bank. The training is hosted by the Delegation of the European Union to Bosnia and Herzegovina/European Union Special Representative in BiH.


More than 100 BiH officials, national and international experts who will take part in the Recovery Needs Assessment for Bosnia and Herzegovina had an opportunity to familiarise themselves with and agree on the recovery needs assessment methodology.

The methodology integrates the World Bank/EU and UN methodology for assessment of the impact of the disaster on the affected areas. This will include a comprehensive assessment of the effects and impact of the disaster from the municipal to the state level, combining social, economic and financial aspects.


The recovery needs assessment will be completed within three weeks and result in a report that is expected to be completed by June 18.
