Securing Access to Water through Institutional Development and Infrastructure
Access to safe drinking water in BiH is well below European standards. Water supply and quality is only adequate in large urban centers; in many smaller cities and rural areas, residents have to pay high prices for water delivered with tankers by private vendors. The Joint Programme's objective was to secure access to safe water for all citizens in Bosnia and Herzegovina by strengthening government capacity, increasing investments in the water supply sector and including poor populations in water planning and policy.
Mainstreaming environmental governance: linking local and national action in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina has made significant strides in economic stabilisation and national cohesion in the two decades since the break-up of the former Yugoslavia. However, the environment sector is critically stagnant: there is a lack of environmental policy and legislation, poorly developed management and implementation capacities, little public participation in environmental decision-making and a lack of reliable information and data. The Joint Programme's goal was to boost local management of environmental resources and service delivery by improving environmental governance and developing replicable models for environmental planning. 
BiH Youth Employability and Retention Programme
The employment situation for young people in Bosnia Herzegovina is challenging. The country is still marked by the residual tensions of war, political dynamics between levels of government are complex, policy implementation inefficient, and the transition economy is operating at below potential. In 2012, 60% of the country's young people were jobless. The Joint Programme worked closely with Government, the private sector and civil society to improve the employability of BiH youth and provide new entry points to the labour market.
Improving Cultural Understanding in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Two decades after the end of the Balkan wars, Bosnia and Herzegovina remains a fragmented society, with divisions along ethnic lines keenly felt, particularly in the school system. The Joint Programme was designed to strengthen the sectors of culture and education as a way to promote sustainable development and an intercultural and tolerant society.
