Bijeljina–Langenhagen partnership: Realization of sustainable development goals

The City of Bijeljina was the only local community from the Republic of Srpska that  participated in the German Ministry of Economy and Economic Relations program "Partnership for sustainable development of local government". The Program includes several local communities from Serbia, Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina, which are partnered with cities in the Federal Republic of Germany. Program is focused on supporting partnerships of local governments and encouraging the joint work on the implementation of sustainable development goals (SDGs; EU Agenda 2030)

During a recent stay in Langenhagen, project teams of Bijeljina (B&H) and Langenhagen (Germany) have prepared Partnership development strategy for social inclusion and joint Action plan which will be implemented in both cities. The project team of the City of Bijeljina also pointed out that they learned a lot on presentation about energy efficiency that has been held by German partners in Langenhagen.

Based on the EU Agenda 2030 and relevant Reform Agenda of B&H on the EU accession, the City of Bijeljina has formed a Partnership on the City level that includes three sectoral groups. The Partnership will be actively involved in strategic planning and decision-making processes at the City level.
