The Programme for Enhancing the Social Protection and Inclusion System for Children (the SPIS Programme) is a multi-year, interdisciplinary programme supporting the pre-accession efforts of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in the field of social protection, social inclusion and child rights. The overall objective is to improve the social protection and inclusion system at all levels of governance through strengthening the SPIS policy framework and capacities of social service providers, in particular to apply needs based and human rights based approach. The main target groups are policy makers and professionals accountable for the reform of the social protection systems, as well as vulnerable groups of children and their families. Programme is financed by the European Union and UNICEF. INNOVA Management Consulting was awarded with a contract for implementation of activities under the 4th programme component (Improve the Capacities of local bodies to manage and coordinate the implementation of local models for the social protection and inclusion of children as well as the capacities of service providers to deliver services for social protection and inclusion of children in all 21 target municipalities). INNOVA will deliver structured trainings to the newly selected SPIS municipalities (5 in Republika Srpska, 5 in the Federation BiH and Brčko District) in programme and child budgeting, as well as to the local CSO’s representatives. INNOVA will use a tailored approach for capacity development of the local government authorities, budget department’s staff and key representatives during the implementation. This phase is a continuation of the technical assistance for application of child budgeting tools in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

BAS activities are aimed at promoting gender equality as an important component of the transition process. A core focus in countries of operations is on helping to realise the potential of women in the MSME sector to contribute to economic development. Reflecting this, over 15% of BAS projects have been specifically targeted at supporting women-owned and women-managed enterprises to address their specific needs. Increasing this ratio further is a strategic priority for BAS activities in the period 2011-2015. In general, women face common problems caused by poor enforcement of gender equality laws, the traditional gender role division, and labour market discrimination. They are discouraged to work or pursue careers, unemployment is high, wage gaps are large, and women’s political activity is poor. The overall objective of the consultancy services is to promote women entrepreneurship in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia in order to support economic development and the transition to a market economy. The specific objective is to develop a training programme comprising a set of training modules aimed at:
