EXTENDED: Lisbon+21 Roadmap development International Expert

At its 177th session held on 19 September 2019, the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina considered and adopted by Conclusion the Information on the Declaration on Youth Policies and Programmes (Lisbon + 21 Declaration), and instructed the Ministry of Civil Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina to form a Working Group with the competent ministries of the entities, cantons, the Department for Professional and Administrative Affairs in the Government of Brcko District of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Youth Council of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Youth Council of the Republika Srpska and the Youth Council of Brcko District of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with recommendations for the implementation of the measures set out in the Declaration on Youth Policies and Programs (Lisbon + 21 Declaration).

All relevant authorities, as well as umbrella youth organizations, have appointed their representatives to the Working Group. The aim of the Working Group is to develop a Roadmap with recommendations for the implementation of measures set out in the Declaration on Youth Policies and Programmes (Lisbon + 21 Declaration). Ministry of Civil Affairs approached UNFPA for partnership in the process and provision of technical support to the Working Group in preparing the Roadmap on Lisbon + 21 Declaration. 

The engagement of an international expert, who would draft a roadmap document prior to the working group meetings, would ensure that the meeting and further development of the document are in compliance with previously established standards and UN and Ministry regulations. Additionally, considering the current epidemiological situation, the working group meetings might have to be held online. In this case, having already established roadmap document draft and distributed prior to the online meeting would enable better understanding and more constructive discussion in online space. The International expert will be supported by the local expert, who will provide key background reading documents for desk review.
The Consultant will perform the following tasks:

-    Conduct desk review and initial consultations with Ministry of Civil Affairs and UNFPA team;
-    Develop methodology and timeline for Roadmap document;
-    Develop concise draft roadmap document;
-    Present the draft roadmap document to the working group;  
-    Facilitate the strategic discussion at the online meeting;
-    Finalize draft roadmap document with inputs received at the meeting;
-    Provide ongoing advisory support to the working group, and
-    Provide comments for the final roadmap document.
