i-icon World Bank Income Classification:Low Income The World Bank classifies economies for analytical purposes into four income groups: low, lower-middle, upper-middle, and high income. For this purpose it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita data in U.S. dollars, converted from local currency using the World Bank Atlas method, which is applied to smooth exchange rate fluctuations. i-icon Least Developed Country:Yes Since 1971, the United Nations has recognized LDCs as a category of States that are deemed highly disadvantaged in their development process, for structural, historical and also geographical reasons. Three criteria are used: per capita income, human assets, and economic vulnerability. i-icon Gender Inequality Index:0.575 GII is a composite metric of gender inequality using three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market. A low GII value indicates low inequality between women and men, and vice-versa. i-icon Gender Development Index:0.723 GDI measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, education, and command over economic resources.

By 2025, people contribute to, and benefit from more accountable and transparent governance systems that deliver quality public services, and ensure rule of law

Throughout 2021, progress was made in regards to achieving this outcome, as a result of multiple interventions on women’s political participation and leadership, gender responsive policy making and budgeting, implementation of national and international normative commitments, and the country’s path to European Union (EU) accession. To that end, UN Women strengthened capacities and increased knowledge on programme budgeting, gender-responsive budgeting, policy making and EU gender equality knowledge of 279 government officials; provided technical support to four gender equality initiatives developed by the BiH Parliamentary Gender Equality Commission, including guidelines to achieve gender responsible parliaments and conduct periodical self-assessment of parliamentary bodies; produced two reports on the status of women, men, girls and boys in the country relevant to the obligations set by the EU Gender Action Plan III and CEDAW Concluding Observations on the Sixth Periodic Report; analyzed budgetary and policy responses to the COVID-19 pandemic; supported the Agency for Gender Equality of BiH in improving capacities to advocate for national and international normative commitments in BiH by developing the CEDAW Action Plan to implement CEDAW Concluding Observationsat the level of BiH institutions; and identified normative priorities and milestones for the period 2022-2025 to inform normative engagement for gender equality and support collaboration with key institutional mechanisms. UN Women also partnered with UNDP, UNICEF, ILO, and WHO to foster dialogue and support the governments at the national and sub-national levels in BiH to establish the ecosystem for systemic financing of SDGs in the country, enabling informed and targeted investment of public funds and mobilization of additional financing for sustainable development, particularly from the private sector. Based on the progress made to date, within a few years, there would be a real impact on the lives, representation, and participation of women in BiH that are currently excluded from major decision-making processes, including in terms of policy making and budgeting, implementation of normative commitments, and the country’s path to EU accession. Stronger partnerships with the government stakeholders in the future could bring about more significant changes under this specific outcome. However, intensified political tensions,as well as a detrimental impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, are significantly impacting and constraining UN Women efforts and interventions in this regard.
