01/20 - 06/23


This project is part of


The Sweden financed CILAP, Capacity Building in Land Administration, project has as its main activities to strengthen the land administration organizations, development of legislation, develop the geodetic infrastructure, building an address register, sales price register (as the first systematic steps towards land and property valuation) and support to ICT, and support to digital archive. After 6 years of implementation the project is ending is December 2019. CILAP was independently evaluated in 2018 by NIRAS. The evaluation concludes that overall the CILAP project has succeeded in building capacity and transfer knowledge with the overall objective to increase the effectiveness and reliability of land administration processes in Bosnia and Herzegovina in line with Swedish strategies and policies, needs and priorities of the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The evaluation recommended a phase out plan to be elaborated by the project team. In June 2019, the project partners submitted a phase out plan which will last from January 2020-December 2022. The budget amount to a maximum of 12 000 000 SEK. In addition, the partners will contribute at least 10 000 000 of in-kind costs during this period. The Embassy concluded that the plan is relevant and feasible and should be approved.


The CILAP, supported by the Sida, has been established as a long-term project with an overall goal to contribute to increasing of the effectiveness and reliability of land administration sector in BiH. The project progress and implementation results were reviewed during implementation period by the external evaluation. A final review of project results was done in November 2018 and the project is considered as successful. The Project is at the final implementation stage and the Federal Administration forGeodetic and Real Property Affairs (FGA) and Republic Authority for Geodetic and RealProperty Affairs (RGA) with the support of the project team developed the documentProposal for the CILAP Phasing out 2020 2021, optionally 2022 dated April 2019. The phasing out of CILAP project activities will be conducted in the period 2020 2021, in order to ensure sustainability of achieved results by creating a firm foundation for smooth takeover of products by both Geodetic Authorities (GA) in BH. The project objectives during the phasing out phase remains the same, but the main intention will be to make project accomplishments strongly anchored and viable within the FGA and RGA. The project contributes to the expected long- term impact:- By efficient land administration contribute to economic and social development, sustainable market and usage of real estates, and BH accession to EU.The capacity development focus of the project is expected to lead to sustainable changes in practices among the project partners RGA and FGA. The project main goal remains:- Make the Land Administration system more efficient, secure and reliable.Mutual conclusion is that the project has succeeded to fulfil the main goal, and an effort during the phasing out will be focused on the assurance of results sustainability. The detail analysis of achievements and risks within the all project components has enabled the project partners to define needs and priorities. It showed that the GA have managed to build sufficient capacity to successfully implement future activities regarding the establishment of digital archive, its integration in the business processes and usage in daily operations but need further support within the other project areas. The part of activities, previously supported within the independent ICT component, will be incorporated in the suggested component devoted to the organizational strengthening and institutional capacity building. Thus, the phasing out will continue with the similar structure as the ongoing project with the focus on the activities that will create needed outputs for assurance of project results sustainability. CILAP phasing out 2020 2021 will contain four (4) components: 1. Support to the continuous organizational strengthening, institutionalization and intensified collaboration with stakeholders to make the programme sustainable beyond 2021 2. Support to the continuous establishment, interoperability and sustainability of Address Register, 3. Support to the Sales Price Register maintenance and strengthening of institutional cooperation with Tax authorities,4. Support to the improvement of geodetic infrastructure in line with EU norms and standards. Note: District Brcko is included in all activities under the component 4 and supported by the project funds. The phasing out document has been reinforced with a primarily focus on results sustainability where the linkages between the inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes and indicators for each component have been further clarified and revised in order to better capture a sustainability dimension of CILAP work, including work related to gender equality, integrity and environment. The expected outcomes:• GA are founded on results-based management, clear procedures to implement, follow up and maintain achieved results to enable the sustainability of developed capacity, products, services with improved cooperation and shared responsibility with land administration stakeholders • GA in BH are recognized and supported by respective governments as leaders in reform of land administration sector and important part of e-governance. GA contribute to the human rights, democracy and poverty reduction through mainstreaming of gender, integrity and environmental protection issues• Procedures for the establishment and maintenance of AR are clearly defined, documented and available to municipalities. Increased coverage of correct and updated AR. AR data is interoperable, publicly available and used in business processes of stakeholders• Sales Price Register data is used for implementation of pilot projects in order to develop a basis for policy making, strategic and methodology planning related to mass valuation and property tax reform in cooperation with direct stakeholders (GA, Tax Authorities and Ministries of Finance)• More accurate, reliable and fast survey (including heights) in real time for cadastral, engineering and environmental purposes based on interoperability with EU and international reference systems. End.
