Local Inclusive Low-Carbon Development - LINK
About the Project
The Local Inclusive Low-Carbon Development Project was implemented from 01st February till 30th November 2021 in the territory of four municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Tešanj, Teslić, Lopare, and Gračanica) in cooperation with the Environment and Energy Centre of Tuzla and with financial support of the Open Society Fund of BiH to acquaint local authorities, citizens, and business community with all aspects of the energy transition and help them develop local-level priorities to implement fair and inclusive transition.
The Core Objective of the Project was to use the bottoms-up approach to involve above mentioned selected local communities into the energy transition process, reduce pollution and shift to renewable energy sources through cooperation and exchange of experiences.
The Project envisaged training of local authorities in energy management and renewable energy sources, assembling of working teams that would lead on this issue in their communities, and creation of the conditions to enhance the awareness of the public about the energy transition and decarbonisation processes.
