More sustainable and better cultural/natural tourism products, improving the capacity of competent and emergency services to manage risks from natural and man-made disasters, improving the capacity of local authorities, business entities and civil society organizations to solve the challenges of climate change are just some of the expected results of the Program cross-border cooperation Bosnia and Herzegovina – Montenegro 2021-2027 which will ultimately contribute to the improvement of living and working conditions in the border area.
In this way, the series of successes achieved through projects within the framework of IPA I and IPA II will continue, during which tourist services were improved and significant progress was made with the aim of creating new opportunities for further development, work, employment and motivating people to create better conditions through their own efforts for themselves and the community.
