Via Dinarica - Second Phase

The second phase Via Dinarica Project will seek to further economic development opportunities in Bosnia and Herzegovina by supporting sustainable nature-based tourism development.

The Project intends to advance the Via Dinarica concept as a mechanism connecting cultural, historical, and natural resources, working in partnership with relevant institutions and other stakeholders, and contributing to improved livelihoods and economic growth, particularly for rural communities along the trails in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This will be achieved through the following outcomes: 

1. Via Dinarica further affirmed and sustained as a safe internationally recognized tourism brand, 

2. Via Dinarica as a tourism platform offering economic development opportunities for local communities. 

While working with a wide range of institutional stakeholders, main Project partners will be the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ministry of Environment and Tourism of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ministry of Trade and Tourism of Republika Srpska, as well as partner local governments to be selected based on the open call.
