Phasing out (2020-2021)

The proposal for the CILAP phasing out has been developed based on an analysis of the results and experiences from the previous phases of support and intensive discussion between the direct project partners RGA, FGA and Lantmäteriet (the Swedish Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registration Authority) and the Embassy of Sweden in Sarajevo (the Embassy) on the best modalities for insurance of long-term sustainability of excellent results achieved so far.

The development of document also included process of reflecting on the conclusions and recommendations of the external evaluation of the project that were undertaken in the second half of 2018, review of the draft project document during May 6-10, 2019, and the Swedish Embassy’s Review before Approval of Appraisal”, dated August 8, 2019.

The main evaluation findings and conclusions validated relevance of the intervention and confirmed success of various activities, but nevertheless, the evaluators warned of a shortcoming related to the shortage of staff that sets limits to FGA and RGA absorption capacity as regards knowledge and skills and other benefits provided by the CILAP, i.e. product and services, which may influence the degree of future sustainability. These was seriously considered and discussed during the programme preparation as one of the main problem that needs to be addressed. The RGA and FGA are fully aware of this problem and have expressed their commitment to take over the educated staff, currently employed by the CILAP project, during the phasing out phase. The project will strongly promote the need for changes in the partner organizations to the entity’s governments and gradually decrease the number of locally employed staff.

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.
